Physician Bio

My primary goal is to return people back to their prior active lifestyles before their injury or disease, whether that is through non-operative management, repair or reconstruction, or in some cases, replacement of the injured joint. I evaluate all orthopedic injuries (except spine), but my area of advanced training lies in shoulder and elbow surgery, including shoulder and elbow arthroplasty. I trained under Dr. Matsen at the University of Washington, where I remain on staff for continuing research on shoulder and elbow disorders.

When I am not seeing patients, I enjoy fishing, mountain biking and hiking with my family.
