My passion is definitely Orthopedic Trauma. That is where I can do the most good. Being able to restore a severely injured person back to normal is why I am an Orthopedic Surgeon.

My elective practice focuses on the lower extremity. I am well known in B.C. for my advanced training in foot and ankle problems. I also perform a large number knee reconstructive procedures, including knee replacement, and knee arthroscopy.

I try to consider the entire limb – well…the entire person really – a poorly aligned femur, knee or tibia has dramatic effects on the function of the foot and ankle.
