About me

As a former high school All-American athlete and collegiate baseball player, I recognized how important sports and exercise were to people. I decided to enter the field of orthopaedics and sports medicine because I became intrigued by helping patients get back to doing the activities they love. Currently, I am a professor at the University of Florida Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine and a team physician for the UF Athletic Association. I earned my medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2003 before going on to complete a residency in orthopaedic surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Following residency, I completed a fellowship in sports medicine and arthroscopy at the University of Miami Sports Medicine Institute (formerly the Uribe, Hechtman, Zvijac Sports Medicine Institute) and a fellowship in shoulder and elbow reconstruction at the University of Florida.

As a physician, I believe all options should be discussed with patients. It is my goal to provide my patients with all of the information they need to make an informed decision about their care. Throughout my career, I have published 14 book chapters and 80 peer-reviewed publications in journals such as the Clinical Journal of Sports Medicine, the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, and Clinical Orthopedics and Related Research. I am also the editor of the “In-Season Management of Football Injuries” textbook.

I was elected to membership in the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. I formerly served as the president of the Florida Orthopedic Society and the Florida Alliance for Sports Medicine. Currently, I am a board member for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the Southern Orthopaedic Association.

My areas of focus include ACL tears, meniscal tears, knee ligament and tendon tears, elbow UCL tears, Tommy John surgery, bicep and tricep tears, rotator cuff tears, shoulder labral tears, shoulder arthritis, hip labral tears and Achilles tendon tears.

In my free time, I enjoy golfing, fishing, exercising and spending time with my family.
