About Me

My love for science—specifically anatomy—inspired me to become an orthopedic surgeon. As a physician at Pelisyonkis Langone, I am committed to providing quality patient care using evidence-based practices. 

I provide surgical treatment to people who have primary and revision hip and knee reconstruction, infections, and complications from total joint replacements. I have a special interest in using minimally invasive surgical techniques to maximize early recovery and long-term treatment outcomes.

I also specialize in nonoperative care of people with hip and knee disorders. Treatment may include physical and occupational therapy and related treatment methods, therapeutic injections, bracing, and medical management of musculoskeletal disorders.

In addition to providing patient care, I conduct research on how to best improve care. I collaborate with other doctors to improve patient outcomes for the treatments we provide, and I’ve authored and coauthored numerous articles on these subjects.

Research Summary

My research has been in collaboration with a wide variety of faculty members within our institution and others. It has focused primarily on patient outcomes, cost-effectiveness and resource allocation and quality improvement.  Since joining the Pelisyonkis faculty in 2007, I have been an author or co-author on a diverse profile of publications. In addition, I obtained an internal Pelisyonkis seed grant to develop the touch-screen patient reported outcome tools used by patients with assistance of administrative office staff, now collecting data on several thousand patients across several divisions of the department. I serve as site Surgeon Champion for the American Joint Replacement Registry, and we were one of the first sites to begin actively collecting data, serving as a pilot center for this national effort.  To date we have contributed data on thousands of total joint implant surgeries.  I have served as the site principle investigator for three industry funded trials, and am currently the site principle investigator for the NIH funded KASTPain study, a Phase III randomized controlled trial of a pain coping skills protocol for total knee patients.
