Additional Information

Since 2007 I have been employed full time as an orthopedic surgeon at a large level 1 trauma center. I serve as the director of orthopedic trauma and have performed over 600 cases per year for 15+ years. I manage acute injuries to the upper and lower extremities surgically and non operatively and deal with the long term sequelae of these injuries including infection, nonunion, and nerve injury. As part of my role, I educate and train medical and physician assistant students. I also oversee quality control of the orthopedic trauma program and attend and participate in monthly quality meetings and M&M reviews. I also participate in local and national meetings as an educator and instructor. I routinely see patients in the office 2 days a week and manage the acute injuries, while also maintaining a practice in general orthopedics, including performing arthroscopy and joint replacement. I perform surgery 2-3 days per week and perform 600+ surgeries per year with a high volume of acute orthopedic fracture care and surgery; but, I also have a large reconstructive practice to deal with the after effects of trauma as well as general musculoskeletal ailments. I serve on many committees within the orthopedic division as well as the hospital and trauma unit itself. I oversee 10 physicians participating in the orthopedic trauma call rotation and ensure their maintenance of certification, trauma CMEs, and quality of care. In addition, I maintain an medical legal practice where I do chart reviews, expert case reviews for personal injury and malpractice, and perform Independent Medical Evaluation.
