His practice has grown rapidly in his time here and his practice continues to encompass joint replacement in the hand and elbow and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, as well as micro vascular surgery of the hand and upper extremity. He is currently working on a research project to study the effect of EMG results on treatment plans/outcomes in patients with carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome. In 2011, he was appointed the Residency Program Director after serving as the Assistant Residency Director from 2009 to 2011.
