Professional Activities:

Although I was trained in all aspects of reconstructive foot & ankle surgery at a Level-I trauma center in downtown Chicago and am Board Certified in Foot Surgery, I still enjoy the basics of podiatry, both conservative and surgical, including bunion & hammertoe surgery and diabetic foot care. I also enjoy the challenges of treating foot problems in runners.

 

Aside from the practice of podiatry, I am privileged to be able to give back to the medical community through education. I frequently have medical residents rotating through my office, and I occasionally have the opportunity to lecture at various medical conferences and at the Medical Schools at Michigan State University.

 

About Myself:

I was raised in Livonia, Michigan and spent seven years in Chicago prior to moving to the Lansing Area. I have completed three full marathons and various half marathons and relays. My free time is spent playing and traveling with my wife (Diane) and our four wonderful children (Alec, Jack, Sam & Lily).
