Overview

Welcome to Rockford Orthopedic! Originally from Winnetka, Illinois, I attended Northwestern University graduating in 1987, cum laude, president of Mortar Board Senior Honor Society and a member of Phi Betta Kappa. I continued my studies at Northwestern University School of Medicine, receiving my medical degree in 1991 as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. Following my graduation, I pursued advanced orthopedic training at Cornell Hospital for Special Surgery, which is ranked as the top orthopedic hospital in the United States. In addition, I completed a specialized training fellowship program in elbow and hand surgery at the Mayo Clinic. My practice is focused on shoulder, elbow, hand, microvasular, traumatic, and reconstructive surgery. It is my mission to provide you compassionate care with expertise comparable to any major university center. I am actively involved in continuing education, have given numerous lectures, and published many orthopedic articles. As Associate Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, I have been awarded the Golden Apple teaching award and the Excellence in Teaching award. I am currently a faculty member at the Orthopedic Learning Center where I teach other surgeons the latest techniques of hand, elbow and shoulder surgery. When not practicing medicine, I enjoy spending time with my family, jogging, weight training, fishing and music. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further improve your experience at Rockford Orthopedic. My goal is to provide you the best medical care available. I am looking forward to meeting with you.
