I am a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with more than 40 years of experience. I specialize in bone fractures, joint replacements in hips, knees, shoulders, elbows and hands. I also perform hand surgery and sports medicine with arthroscopic surgeries of joint.
I have a kind and understanding nature and like to spend a considerable amount of time consulting with my patients on their conditions, explaining procedures in detail and answering any questions. I have a friendly and compassionate manner that helps to put patients at ease.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
