"I treat my patients like I would treat any member of my family. My top priority is to help you restore function to get you back to the highest level of performance possible. I want my patients to be the best they can be, so I provide individualized care to meet their personal needs. I believe in a team approach to health care, and I am honored to work with an excellent staff of nurses, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and others.
During my fellowship, I had the opportunity to train with Dr. James Andrews and Dr. William Clancy, two of the most prestigious sports medicine surgeons in the country. I am currently a team sports medicine physician at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, St. Norbert College, and multiple area high schools. This allows me to stay current on state-of-the-art surgical procedures."
