Growing up, my father was a high school teacher and coach. I always loved sports, teaching and caring for other people. Being an orthopedic surgeon with a niche towards sports medicine allows me to do all those things I loved and dreamed of doing as a child. Being able to help others is unbelievably fulfilling, and doing so in a city like Fond du Lac is truly a dream come true.
My philosophy of care is to do my absolute best to take care of each and every patient. When I am with a patient, they are the most important person in the world to me at that given time. I will try my best to give them my full and undivided attention.
Working with the orthopedic team at Agnesian HealthCare, we provide “big city” care in a small town atmosphere. Having lived in Fond du Lac for 20 years, I feel like I know everyone, thus I, and we as an organization, can provide more personalized care.
