My Areas of Practice

There is nothing more professionally rewarding than improving a patient's quality of life and/or function. To accomplish this I utilize my past experience and clinical and technical expertise I have gathered throughout my career. 

I have been in and around the field of orthotics since 2007. The bulk of my time was spent in the Chicago area, where I had the privilege to work and learn at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. There, I was exposed to a vast array of pathologies and disabilities covering all age groups. The rehabilitation setting permitted me to provide patient care in a team approach. This approach included working with and communicating effectively with physicians, therapists, and most importantly the patient. Here at TRIA Orthopaedic and Park Nicollet we have a similar approach which promotes individuals to bring their own expertise with the ultimate goal of achieving positive clinical outcomes for our patients. 

Based primarily at TRIA Orthopaedic I specialize in all types of upper extremity, lower extremity and spinal orthoses (better known as braces) for patients of all ages and pathologies.

In my personal time I enjoy spending time outdoors in our beautiful state, the occasional late night out with my wife and/or friends, and watching as many NFL games as humanly possible.
