About

About

I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in surgery of the hand and upper extremity. I received a bachelor's degree from The Johns Hopkins University, and a medical degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I completed my residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the Mount Sinai Medical Center and a Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery Fellowship at the Yale University School of Medicine.

My specialty interest is in the treatment and reconstruction of fractures, soft tissue injuries, and neuropathies involving the hand and upper extremity. I employ both traditional and the most advanced surgical techniques, including minimally invasive techniques, such as endoscopic carpal tunnel release, minimally invasive fracture repair, and small joint arthroscopy.

I am a member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and The New York Society for Surgery of the Hand. I have published medical articles and presented at regional and national orthopedic conferences on conditions related to the hand and upper extremity. I have performed funded research related to the hand and upper extremity. I have received numerous awards and honors, including New York Magazine s Best Doctor, Castle Connolly Top Doctors, New York Times Super Doctors, Best Doctors in America, Patients Choice Award, and Most Compassionate Doctor.
