I am a tenured full professor in the Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine and the holder of the Douglas T. Harryman II Endowed Chair in Shoulder and Elbow Research. I specialize in shoulder and elbow reconstructive surgery, including the ream and run procedure, total shoulder replacement, reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, total elbow replacement and complex revision shoulder and elbow surgery.
Family, hiking, backpacking, fly fishing, cycling, and health.
I am dedicated to providing patients with the best knowledge regarding their shoulder or elbow condition along with the most current evidence-based information regarding the options available for their care. My patients have full access to my personal email so that all questions can be answered expeditiously. My goal is a full patient-surgeon partnership.
Optimizing safety and effectiveness for patients needing shoulder and elbow reconstruction. I perform over 200 shoulder joint replacements per year for individuals with shoulder arthritis or complications of previous surgery.

I am actively involved in research into the factors that affect the outcome of shoulder and elbow reconstructive surgery. The goal is to aggressively seek to improve the excellence of the care we can offer patients needing surgical care for their shoulder or elbow problem.
I am also pioneering new approaches so to reconstruction that allow individuals desiring to return to high levels of activity. One particular example is the ‘ream and run’ procedure that avoids the potential limitations associated with a conventional total shoulder replacement.
