My passion for orthopedic surgery started during medical school, when I experienced how much a hip and knee replacement can improve a patient’s quality of life.

At NYU Langone Madison Avenue Orthopedics, I specialize in hip and knee reconstruction, as well as diagnosing and treating arthritis.

Both my clinical practice and research focus on complex primary and revision total hip and knee replacements, including rapid postsurgical recovery, outpatient joint replacement surgery, opioid-sparing surgical pathways, periprosthetic fractures and infections, and robotic-assisted total joint replacement.

With the rise of hip and knee replacement procedures, my goal is to deliver the highest possible care and to achieve the best outcomes for my patients.

I have authored numerous publications and currently hold three patents and multiple instrument designs in the joint replacement field. I’m a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, and Musculoskeletal Tumor Society.
