My love for math and science growing up led me to study mechanical engineering in college. After college I developed an interest in orthopedics from talking with friends and having multiple orthopedic procedures. I love helping people get their lives back from injury and/or disease. Orthopedic surgery is a great blend of engineering, medicine and art.
What drew you to Methodist Hospital?
Warm and inviting people. Great practice opportunity. Organization seemed to be committed to health of everyone in the community.
What do you most enjoy about your work?
I enjoy seeing a solution to a patient’s problem in my mind’s eye and then using principles of medicine, surgery, engineering and orthopedics to give them their life back. Being able to do a job you enjoy and help others is truly a blessing.
