I see patients at


I am a board certified orthopaedic surgeon on faculty at OHSU with sub-specialized expertise in foot and ankle disorders. I chose this field within Orthopaedics because treating foot and ankle maladies is tremendously meaningful. When people share their foot and ankle problems with me, it is my mission to work with them to achieve practical solutions that address their functional goals. It is particularly gratifying to see an athlete return to sport after treating their injury. Equally inspiring are the stories of patients who simply return to activities they enjoy such as hiking, cycling, or even taking their dog for a walk. In my role as an educator at OHSU, it is a privilege to share these experiences with the next generation of physicians and surgeons.
