From the Doctor:
My wife and I are proud to be a part of the Jacksonville community. We enjoy spending our time with our three children at the beaches, parks, and nature preserves of North Florida.
I believe in involving patients in every decision made about their care through patient education. I promote conservative treatments and encourage rehabilitation prior to considering surgery. When conservative treatment fails to meet my patients needs and surgery is indicated, my sub-specialty training allows me to offer the latest techniques and technology available in hip and knee replacement.
It is my privilege to serve the musculoskeletal needs of our community.
