Hip & Knee Fellowship

After my orthopedic residency training at Yale University in 1992, I completed a fellowship in hip and knee replacements at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital. Fellowship training gave me great experience with the “tough cases” and complicated revision or repeat surgeries around the hip and knee. Specialization in joint replacements through a committed hip and knee fellowship is important.

I also completed a second fellowship in spine surgery. Research demonstrates that disorders in the spine can affect how hip and knee replacements should be done. My two fellowships in spine and hip / knee give me a unique perspective that helps me perfect hip and knee replacement surgery.
