I am a board certified orthopedic surgeon, specializing in the knee, hip, and shoulder. I am committed to providing my patients with comprehensive, progressive orthopedic care, including today’s most innovative and best practices to achieve optimal orthopedic function and performance. In addition to traditional orthopedic treatments and surgery, I also offer minimally invasive alternatives utilizing state of the art technology and integrative orthobiologic therapies and treatments. Currently, I have 4 IRB-approved research studies utilizing stem cells derived from bone marrow and adipose tissue in conjunction with platelet-rich plasma to treat pain and improve function in osteoarthritis, soft tissue injuries (rotator cuff and labral tears, meniscal tears, etc.), and avascular necrosis. I offer an integrative approach to healing musculoskeletal conditions, utilizing nutrition, specialty testing, DEXA/bone density scans, and a variety of treatment options to improve quality of life and prevent progression of musculoskeletal disease. I believe in the body’s natural ability to heal itself by incorporating a holistic approach using the latest advances in research related to orthopedics and sports medicine.

NOTE: Forever Health provides a directory where people like you can connect with BHRT and other physicians and innovative health practitioners. We do not provide medical advice or services directly. While BHRT and prevention are important to the physicians and health practitioners listed, each has his or her own approach to practicing medicine. So when scheduling your appointment, be sure to clarify the reason for your visit, as well as your goals for seeking out such treatment.

NOTE on Insurance: Innovative practitioners and insurance companies have long debated the importance of preventive medicine and services such as BHRT. Due to variations in coverage for novel treatment options, many practitioners will resolve this issue by providing their services on a cash-only basis. Forever Health encourages you to contact the practitioner to determine if any alternative payment options or post-visit reimbursements exist.

DISCLAIMER: Inclusion in this directory is free to practitioners and does not constitute endorsement by Forever Health. All health practitioners who appear on this list do so on the sole basis of their own expression of interest in the fields of BHRT or other integrative medicine. Forever Health does not verify the competence, professional credentials, business practices or validity of the expressed interests of these health practitioners. Forever Health makes no recommendation of any health practitioner on this list and makes no suggestion that any such health practitioner will cure, treat, or prevent any disease or condition.
