I grew up in the Bay Area, attending college at the University of California at Berkeley, receiving a Bachelor's in Neurobiology. I then attended New York Medical College, earning my Medical Degree. I went on to train as a general surgeon at St. Luke's Roosevelt in New York City. During that time, I decided to specialize in Hand Surgery and I completed a fellowship in Hand and Wrist Surgery at Stony Brook University.
I returned to the Bay Area in 2007 and have been in private practice since. I am certified by the American Board of Surgery and have a Certificate of Added Qualification in Hand Surgery.
I am also specially-trained in minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery for the wrist as well as Xiaflex (collagenase) injections for the treatment of Dupuytren's Contracture. In fact, I trained with the world-renowned Lawrence Hurst, M.D., who helped to invent collagenase for the treatment of Dupuytren's.
When I am not taking care of patients, I enjoy training for triathlons, hiking, photography, painting, and cooking.
