Fellowship Clinical Experience
My focus is on the treatment of children and adults with upper and lower limb length discrepancies, short stature, limb deformities, nonunions, bone defects, bone infections, joint contractures, arthritis, and distraction treatment of Perthes disease.
During my training, I have been involved in a multi-modal approach to patient management by being an active participant with the departments of physical therapy, occupational therapy, radiology, and the gait analysis lab, all of which operate exclusively for the ICLL.
I have participated in a major referral center for the Ponseti method of Clubfoot treatment. This facility offers Friday clinics exclusively dedicated to the management of infants with clubfoot deformity and provides extensive experience with castings and tenotomies.
