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.

 I speak French, Italian and Spanish.
