He was a part of the Honors College on an academic scholarship and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Biological Sciences, a degree in Economics, and a minor in psychology. He was elected to Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society.
His next chapter took him to medical school at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, where he graduated with the highest honors. He completed residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL where he was elected by faculty and peers to serve as Chief Resident of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery during his final year.

His patient centered focus is complimented by evidence-based care. He has authored numerous research publications, textbook chapters, as well as has presented nationally and internationally on his research. While he strives to treat each patient with non-operative measures, he understands a unique, personalized surgical plan is needed to ensure an optimal outcome when surgery is necessary. He believes the needs of the patient come first, and the goal is to help patients get back to activities they love doing!
