Professional Profile

I became a doctor because I like helping people. I grew up playing sports and when I was younger and had to see doctors for various fractures or sports injuries. The doctors I met as a young athlete inspired me to start thinking about a career in medicine.

I've been the Director of the Orthopedic Trauma Program at NorthBay Medical Center for the past five years. I see patients of all ages, suffering from a variety of issues, such as broken wrists or gun shot wounds.

What I like about orthopedic surgery is that I can fix a patient's problem and get them on the road torecovery. When I see a patient with severe pain from a serious injury or condition —I can help heal them —and then, they can return to their normal activities in just a few months. That brings me the most satisfaction.

My special interest is sports medicine, and I have extensive experience with skiing and snowboardinginjuries. For 10 years, I was the physician at Snowbird/Alta Ski Resort in Utah. I offer shoulder and knee evaluations for sports injuries, arthroscopic surgery and ligament reconstruction.

I've played sports my whole life and I love skiing. I'm also fluent in Spanish. Yo habló español también.
