My care philosophy

I am passionate about taking care of the active individual of all ages. When a competitive or recreational athlete incurs an injury, I relish the opportunity to provide meticulous care in guiding them back to their desired activity through both my operative expertise and my non-operative skills. My devotion to the care of my patients is evident in the following values that guide my practice as well as my colleagues, the team of sports medicine physicians at the University of Colorado: Excellence, Integrity, Teamwork, Professionalism, Respect, Passion, Patient-centered, Leadership, Positivity, Innovation, Compassion, Inspiration. Our mission at CU Sports Medicine is to define and deliver exceptional evidence-based care for the athlete in everyone. We are committed to providing the highest quality professional and ethical care to all patients through the integration of comprehensive education and exceptional musculoskeletal research combined with outstanding care of the patient.
