As a central Kansas native, I grew up in Hutchinson before attending The University of Kansas for my undergraduate degree. I attended medical school at The University of Kansas and completed my residency at The University of Kansas Medical Center in orthopedic surgery. Following residency, I completed an orthopedic surgery sports medicine fellowship at TRIA Orthopaedic Center in Minneapolis, assisting in the care of professional athletes from all four major professional teams in the Twin Cities area.
As part of the care team for the Kansas City Royals and the Kansas City Chiefs organizations, I work with a multidisciplinary team of physicians and sports medicine experts to treat professional athletes. Treating the pros, however, is only part of my work. I treat everyday athletes, weekend warriors and competitors at all levels to get them back on the field. I specialize in arthroscopic surgery of the hip, shoulder and knee, as well nonsurgical and surgical management of nearly all sports-related injuries. I have a special interest in adolescent and adult hip preservation, and the arthroscopic management of femoroacetabular impingement and labral tears of the hip.
