I am an Orthopaedic trauma surgeon (an orthopaedic surgeon
who has completed an extra year of training in trauma).I care for patients with musculoskeletal
injuries, in particular traumatic injuries.My specialty includes patients with simple isolated fractures (broken
bones) as well as patients with multiple severe injuries (multiple broken
bones) due to accidents (automobile, motorcycle, etc.), falls from height, or
crush injuries.I care for both male and
female, pediatric and adult patients.I
manage all fractures of the extremities and pelvis, however, I do not take care
of injuries to the spine and rarely of the hand.
I have several special interests within trauma.First, and foremost, I am passionate about
the care of patients who have sustained foot and ankle trauma.This would include, in particular, any injury
to the lower tibia (shin bone) or more distal (pilon, calcaneus, talus,
navicular/cuboid, lis franc, etc.).
I also have a strong fondness for the correction of
this can occur, despite one’s best effort, with any fracture.When this does occur, it can be associated
with limited function, pain or both.The
correction of a mal-union (crooked bone) can be very rewarding for both the
patient and myself by increasing function and decreasing pain.
I have assembled a select team to assist me to these ends
(staff).They were specifically chosen
because of their unique talents in the care of patients with the above listed
injuries. As a team, we look forward to helping you in the management of injury
or deformity.If we can be of
assistance, please contact us.(317-917-4126)
