Practice Philosophy

“I believe in treating my patients as I would treat a member of my own family. I hope they leave ValleyOrtho feeling like they have a clear diagnosis and treatment plan and that all of their questions have been answered. The greatest satisfaction I receive as an orthopaedic surgeon is seeing my patients restored to full health and function. It is a privilege to be a trusted partner in that process.”
