I grew up playing sports, and it was the discipline and team spirit I experienced that helped influence my decision to pursue a career in orthopaedics and sports medicine. As a former athlete and active individual today, I feel I can relate to injured athletes and adults who live an active lifestyle. What I love most about my work is watching patients return to what they love, whether it be an athlete getting back on the field or an individual returning to their active lifestyle. Seeing patients leave my office feeling healthier and better than before is truly a gratifying experience.
I graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine and moved to Atlanta to complete my internship and residency in orthopaedic surgery. Wanting to specialize in sports medicine, I then went to Virginia to complete a fellowship in sports medicine at Orthopaedic Research of Virginia. However, being a native of Evansville, I always aspired to return here and serve the people of this community in which I was raised.
My practice focuses on sports medicine, arthroscopy, knee and shoulder injuries, joint replacement and fracture care. My philosophy is to listen to my patients and communicate clearly with them in order to come up with treatment options that best fit them and their lifestyle.
