Personal Biography

I completed my orthopaedic surgical training and pediatric fellowship in Salt Lake City, UT, and joined Gillette Children's Hospital in 2011. 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 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.
