“I enjoy seeing my patients return to their pre-injured activities.”

I joined the United States Army Reserve following medical school and served as a Major in the United States Army Reserves Medical Division. In addition, I pursued advanced training in orthopedic surgery as part of my residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. My specialty is general orthopedics with an interest in adult hip and knee reconstruction and sports medicine. In my spare time, I also enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, hunting, fishing, and other water activities.
