Personal Biography

I am a board certified orthopaedic surgeon with specialization in pediatric orthopaedic surgery. I completed my orthopaedic surgical training and pediatric orthopaedic surgery fellowship at the University of Utah, and joined Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in 2011. I began caring for children with acute traumatic injuries and acute musculoskeletal infections on a part-time basis at Children's Minnesota in 2011 as well. I specialize in treatment of pediatric orthopaedic conditions including fractures, limb deformity, hip dysplasia, club feet, and other bone and soft tissue conditions. I also treat patients with a spectrum of neuromuscular disorders. I enjoy the privilege of helping to maximize and restore function to patients, while working with the patient, family and treatment team to optimize results. I serve as the pediatric orthopaedic fellowship director for Gillette Hospital, and also in a teaching role for orthopaedic residents from the University of Minnesota and Henry Ford Hospital. I have a special interest in orthopaedic outreach programs in countries with limited resources, and have spent time in Ghana on multiple occasions. When not in the hospital, I enjoy trail running, skiing, hiking, camping, novice surfing and travel around the world.
