My approach to treating patients

Over the past 20 years, my practice has been dedicated to meeting the orthopaedic needs of children. As a former faculty member at the USC Keck School of Medicine, and more recently, at the Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, I have had the privilege of caring for children from all walks of life. What all parents share in common is a desire to obtain the best care for their children.

Outstanding care begins with a thoughtful evaluation of the child coupled with providing the family the information they need to share in management decisions. Working together with the patient and their parents as a team is vital to achieve the best possible treatment outcome.

Not all orthopaedic conditions require extensive surgery - and this is especially true for children. Many problems can be solved using minimally-invasive techniques, such as the Ponseti method of clubfoot correction, and surgery only when necessary.

My clinics are located at the Orthopaedic Hosptial Outpatient Medical Center, near downtown Los Angeles. I am also available for consultation at the Luskin Childrn's Clinic in Santa Monica. Thank you for visiting my webpage.
