Why this practice?

I have spent nearly my entire life in New York City. I could not imagine living anywhere else, nor could I imagine taking care of any other population.  This is home for me, and I am excited to have the opportunity to take care of such a diverse group of people.  I chose to work at this practice because I felt the need to deliver excellent orthpaedic care to the children and adolescents of New York City. My partners, all of whom are caring and goal-oriented, share my vision of bringing the gold standard of care to our patients.

Why Orthopaedics?

My training has gifted me with the ability to work with children and adolescents with growing and developing musculoskeletal system repair, and to restore patients to their pre-injury level and bring them a painless quality of life or reconstruct their anatomy. It is a unique and an amazing profession, and I am honored to work not only with the patients, but their families as well.
