I was born and raised in Gary, Indiana. I became interested in orthopaedic surgery because my mother had orthopaedic problems. Being the youngest of four, I usually was the one who accompanied my mother when she went for her appointments. Whenever I take care of patients or operate, I always think of my mother, which means you will get the best care on the planet.
