Personal Statement:

My interests were in anatomy of the musculoskeletal system and physical function which integrates best to Orthopaedic Surgery. This correlates to skills needed for repair of injured muscles, bones and joints. I was in private practice at Piedmont Hospital for 15 years. During that time I was a volunteer at Grady covering hand surgery. I had the opportunity in 1993 to join the Emory University School of Medicine faculty and teach full time at Grady. This position allows me to provide quality care to the Grady patients and development of capable future Orthopaedic Surgeons.
