Originally raised in the Bay Area, I attended the University of California, San Diego and graduated with a degree in Biology. I then attended Podiatry School in San Francisco and then completed my surgical residency at Kaiser Hayward. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. I have more than 20 years of experience working for a large HMO and the VA before turning to private practice. I have enjoyed being an instructor at the California School of Podiatric Medicine in Podopediatrics as well as training surgical residents for most of my career.
My specialties are pediatrics including clubfoot correction. I am acknowledged by the Ponseti International Association as a qualified practitioner in the Ponseti Method. http://www.ponseti.info/ponseti-doctors-by-location.html I have years of experience treating sports medicine conditions, foot and ankle trauma, complex reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, diabetic foot care and preventative medicine. In my spare time I enjoy watching and playing many sports including golfing, mountain biking, hiking and swimming. I am married with 3 grown children.
