About Me

I decided to become a doctor because I love to help people. I grew up around the healthcare field; however, it wasn’t until college that I knew I wanted to pursue sports medicine as a profession. I was no stranger to sports injuries as a college athlete, so I became familiar with orthopedics. I wanted to be able to diagnose and treat athletes and get them back to competing. I attended medical school at the University of Oklahoma, completed my residency at Martin Luther King, Jr./Drew Medical Center in Los Angeles and finished my fellowship at Wellington Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine in Cincinnati, Ohio

Aside from my duties as medical director and head team physician of the Kansas City Royals, I have a passion for treating young athletes. With four athletic children of my own, I know the importance of treating the individual patient, not just the injury. Board-certified in orthopedic surgery, I specialize in arthroscopic procedures and the treatment of shoulder, elbow and knee injuries for professional athletes, young athletes and weekend warriors alike. The injuries for all levels of athletes are similar, and often so are their treatment courses.
