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 & coaching basketball and traveling with my wife (Diane) and our four wonderful children (Alec, Jack, Sam & Lily).
