Biographical notes

I was originally encouraged by my mother, a labor and delivery nurse, to pursue a career in medicine. I became a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon because it is a challenging surgical specialty that requires a lot of thought when making decisions, and because the population is near and dear to my heart. I take care of children with special orthopaedic needs, including scoliosis and other spine disorders, as well as children with growth abnormalities. I also see pediatric trauma patients, meaning children who need orthopaedic surgery due to an accident or other injury. I’m driven to help children with these needs because of their innocence, because they are not responsible for their disorders. I am inspired by their ability to overcome adversity and to adapt to their circumstances, and I find deep gratification when I am able to help improve their lives in some way.
