General Information


Biography
My approach to patient care is to focus on the best of available options for the patient on an individual basis. My goal is to provide thorough, compassionate and quality care to my patients. When appropriate, I recommend nonoperative over operative treatment. When operative treatment is needed, I believe it should be performed with technical expertise and followed with a tailored rehabilitation program. I have completed subspecialty fellowship training in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. My focus is on athletic injuries and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. As an Orthopaedic Team Physician for the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Mariners, I treat professional and other athletes as well as nonathletes. I strive to treat each person with the same level of care.
