Get to Know Your Orthopedic Surgeon

Q: What sparked your interest to focus in total joint replacement?
A: There is no better feeling than being able to take away someone’s hip or knee pain and restore them back to a higher level of activity and function.  Living in pain affects all facets of a person’s life, from recreational activity to their mental health.  Fortunately, hip and knee replacement can make a life-changing difference and I love being able to help facilitate this.

Q: Who was your role model growing up and encouraged you to follow your dreams?
A: My parents.  They inspired me to work hard and live a life that is more than just about me.  My dad is a Vietnam veteran and my mom was a special education teacher for 30 years.  They instilled a work ethic that has helped get me to where I am now and have always been there to offer support. 

Q: What’s the most interesting story that you have working with your colleagues?
A: I had the opportunity to spend 6 months at a NATO hospital in Kabul staffed by medical personnel from Australia, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Slovakia, Czechia, Norway and Romania.  We took turns celebrating each nation’s holidays and traditions.  It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and generated lots of good memories and friendships! 

Q: What’s your favorite thing about the city of Pittsburgh?
A: My wife, Rachel, grew up in Beaver Falls and we met while cadets at the United States Military Academy. We were married in Pittsburgh in 2000 and have bounced around the world with the Army since then. We are looking forward to settling back down in her hometown.
