A skilled surgeon, she has extensive experience treating patients at all fitness levels who have suffered ligament, tendon, muscle, cartilage and bone injuries. She believes it is important to take the time to listen to her patients, ensure they understand their injuries, communicate options based on the latest research and technology, and collaboratively develop a personalized treatment plan that works for each individual.
