About

I have been in the practice of orthopedics for 30 years. In addition to seeing patients at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital, I see patients at MedStar Harbor and MedStar Union Memorial, and in Bel Air, Timonium, and Westminster. The only priority in my life has been to do whatever is in the best interest of my patients. That includes non-operative care, surgical procedures, and post-operative care. All are equally important. All patients receive procedures that are customized for their needs. That may include primary or revision total knee or hip replacement, partial knee replacement or robotic hip or knee replacement with the MAKOplasty technology.

For the entirety of my career I have been part of the faculty of the Johns Hopkins University Department of Orthopedics. That speaks directly to my commitment to excellence and my commitment to teaching. I have also lectured and performed surgery across the globe and specifically in Europe, Asia and South America. That experience has included working with the medical missionary group Operation Walk where we aided the disadvantaged in both Peru and Ecuador. I am fortunate in that I have had the benefit of a fantastic education at the college, medical school and fellowship levels. I am proud that I was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, the Alpha Omega Alpha Honorary Medical School Society and American Orthopedic Association. I am also very proud of the fact that I am also the Team Orthopedist for the Baltimore Orioles baseball team. On a daily basis I strive to apply what I have learned over the past 30 years to improve the lives of my patients.
