Overview

Who I am as a Physician: 
I'm an Orthopedic Surgeon and sub specialist in Musculoskeletal Oncology who has been practicing medicine for the past 24 years. 
I graduated from Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences (USUHS) in 1990 with a M.D. In 1991, while stationed at Wright Patterson AFB, I completed my Internship of General Surgery at Wright State University. I finished my Orthopedic Surgeon Residency program at Wilford Hall Medical Center at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, TX and have 20+ years of experience in Orthopedics. 
In 2003 I was accepted to exceptional Orthopedic Oncologist Fellowship program at the highly acclaimed M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston Texas. I have over 10 years of experience in the sub specialized field of Oncology. 
In my last tour of my 29+ years in the United States Air Force I served as the 59th Medical Wing Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Squadron Commander (O-6) as well as the Deputy Chair for the entire Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Department for the San Antonio Medical Military Center from 2008-2010. 
After retiring from the Air Force in 2010, I began working as an Orthopedic Oncology specialist for Surgery Oncology Associates in San Antonio Texas until 2013. I now currently reside in the magnificent city of El Paso Texas and I am the Oncology specialist at El Paso Orthopaedic Surgery Group as of 2013 - present. As one of roughly 125 Orthopedic Oncologists in the United States and the only Orthopedic Oncologist in El Paso, my philosophy of care is complete dedication for the safeguarding of life and limb while combating aggressive musculoskeletal tumors. I constantly endeavor to develop the purposeful outcomes of my patients through continued progress of new and result-driven surgical techniques. My goal is to truly provide unmatched medical care with zero compromises I treat every patient not as customer but as a person, a man or woman who has family with real hopes and fears. I sincerely believe the focus should be solely on patient care, not paperwork. I work with them to find the optimal treatment for their condition and their personal needs. I discuss all available options and possibilities of treatment exhaustively and believe that even if saving the limb is not possible or desired, the patient should fully comprehend and appreciate all the risks and benefits of treatment. I want every patient we see walk from my office with a full understanding of their situation and what I can and will provide for them.
