About Me

I did my residency training and fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota, which is one of the premier hip and knee replacement institutions in the country.  I trained with many of the worlds experts and innovators in hip and knee replacement surgery.  Since leaving the Mayo clinic I have been performing hip and knee replacements in the Department of Orthopaedic surgery at the Hershey Medical Center for the last twelve years.  I currently perform about 300 hip and knee replacements per year.  I am a member of several national orthopaedic organizations and am the research committee chairman for the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons.  I am happy to be raising my family in Central PA and look forward to helping the folks of Central PA for many years.
