I am committed to giving the patients of Central Texas a better class of Orthopedic care. My goal is to rapidly return patients to the game of life by focusing on the physical and emotional aspects of recovery. I try to accomplish this by building strong personal relationships with my patients and I always encourage a team approach to their recovery process.
