His most common elective procedures include: knee arthroscopy, arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, shoulder instability surgery, total knee replacement, total hip replacement, total shoulder replacement, reverse total shoulder replacement, and anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. He has helped thousands of patients return to normal, fun-filled and active lives through operative and non-operative management of their orthopaedic problems.
