About the Doctor
"I was raised in West Caldwell NJ, a suburb of New York City. After high school, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Science degree, and membership in Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi Honor Societies."
"After college I began my medical studies at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, and completed my Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital, a Level One Trauma Center, where I benefitted from a comprehensive surgical experience, and developed expertise in complex orthopaedic trauma procedures. As Chief Resident, I took a keen interest in joint reconstruction and pursued this subspecialty in an Adult Joint Reconstruction Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard University. It was there that I had the opportunity to work side by side with many world-renowned surgical specialists in the areas of hip and knee replacements. I was also a faculty member of the Harvard Medical School where I helped educate medical students in joint reconstruction, and took Level One Orthopaedic trauma calls."
"Following my Massachusetts General/Harvard experience, I was appointed head of the Joint Reconstruction program at Adena Regional Medical Center outside of Columbus, Ohio. While at Adena I performed hundreds of surgeries and received the hospital's highest scores for patient satisfaction among all practicing surgeons."
"In July 2014 I moved back to South Florida with my wife and two young children. In my free time I enjoy running, golf, and fitness."
