About Me

I am a board-certified, orthopedic surgeon specializing in adult and pediatric sports medicine, cartilage restoration and joint preservation, complex knee surgery, and shoulder and elbow care. I performed my orthopedic surgery residency at William Beaumont Army Medical Center and served 13 years in the U.S. Army, earning multiple honors including the Meritorious Service Medal and Army Commendation Medal. During my fellowship training at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, I served as a team physician for the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox, Chicago Fire (MLS), and Chicago Steel (USHL). As Chief and Fellowship Director for Sports Medicine, I am passionate about medical education and patient-centered care. I currently act as a Team Physician for Wake Forest University (Baseball, Men’s and Women’s Soccer), Winston-Salem Dash (Chicago White Sox), U.S. Ski and Snowboard, and several Triad area high schools. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and hiking with my wife, Sarah, a historical fiction author.
