Throughout his fellowship he received extensive training in advanced arthroscopic techniques for shoulder instability and rotator cuff tears.  He also received a world class experience in complex shoulder reconstructive procedures including tendon transfers, shoulder replacement and reverse shoulder replacement.  In addition, he has a strong interest in sports medicine as well as fracture management.

When not at work, he stays busy with his four active children. His only saving grace is that his twins like the same sports!
