“As an athletic child, I was naturally drawn to the field of Orthopedics and Sports. From my pre-adolescent years, I found myself at the side of fallen teammates in the midst of an event. I understood then how even a minor injury can sideline anyone. I grew to explore all avenues of treatment options to get my teammates and now my patients back on track.”
