About Me

I am a fellowship-trained pediatric orthopaedic surgeon who cares for the musculoskeletal system of patients starting at birth and into adulthood. As a comprehensive pediatric orthopaedic surgeon, I get to take care of a wide range of conditions ranging from common broken bones to complex spinal deformity and neuromuscular limb deformity. My fascination with structure and function is not confined to my professional life - when not at work, I can usually be found tinkering/building/fixing any and everything around the house. My wife, Olivia, is a physician as well. She trained here at Wake Forest Baptist and now practices dermatology. If you don't see us in the office, check the trails of Pilot Mountain, Hanging Rock, or anywhere else outdoors - we are probably there on an adventure with our dog, Maple.
