“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” -Vince Lombardi

I joined the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group in 2014 after completing my residency in foot and ankle surgery in Seattle, having trained with well-known podiatrists and orthopedists. I spent time in San Francisco rotating at Kaiser Permanente and knew that I would thrive under this health care delivery model where physicians can focus on what they do best.

It is my goal to take excellent care of all your foot and ankle needs. My aspiration is to be a leader in the field of lower extremity surgery and to be known for my caring and compassionate approach.

My focus is treating lower extremity injuries and deformities with advanced techniques and bread-and-butter principles. I have an interest in total ankle replacement, osteochondral lesions of the talus, ankle arthritis, ankle instability, ankle fractures, as well as functional amputations and skin grafting.

As I was growing up, my step-mother had both of her legs amputated due to chronic pain from many failed foot surgeries, so I take my treatments and outcomes very seriously. I understand how foot and ankle pain and dysfunction affect the quality of your life.  I want you to be actively involved and informed in our shared decision making.
