Joint Replacement

Hip and Knee Replacement Specialist

Triangle Region

North Carolina Specialty Hospital

I am a board-certified fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in rapid recovery hip and knee replacement and complex replacement surgeries. But my practice goes much deeper than my credentials. No two people are alike, and in partnership with each patient, I help develop an individualized treatment plan based on each patient’s unique and specific goals, such as alleviating pain and resuming activities they love. I chose orthopaedics, specifically the treatment of hip and knee arthritis, because I deeply value physical activity, independence, and quality of life. I am humbled by the opportunity to be able to help patients keep these, and oftentimes improve them! Do you want reduction in pain, better mobility, or a return to a favorite activity? Regardless of why someone may come to see me, it would be a privilege to see how I could work with you to accomplish your health and activity goals.
