Philosophy of Care

Simply, I entered medicine to care for children. I followed my father, a pediatric hematologist and oncologist, in this regard. Despite initial pediatric residency, I realized surgical care, especially of the child’s hand, was my life path. I am blessed to care for children and adolescents and their parents, with both highly specialized and more common problems of the hand and upper limb. Every day, I try to improve and share my continuing education and research with others.

At the same time, I am deeply devoted to my family and community. My dad died suddenly when I was 10, and the impact of his loss has guided me each day to treasure my time with those I love. I was fortunate to coach soccer and basketball for years including Division 1 soccer through high school age, and Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) basketball on a regional and national level, and even Division 3 college basketball. Our 501c3 program of leadership, education and sport combined urban and suburban youth in a way that I am most proud of. Those young men went to college; some of those women now attend medical school.
