I enjoy getting to know my patients and taking the time to listen to their needs. Every injury is different, as is every patient, so it takes an individualized approach in orthopedics to help the patient understand their diagnosis and treatment plan. I enjoy being part of the community and getting involved with the local athletes and teams.
I became interested in orthopedics after my own knee surgeries. I underwent reconstructive surgery on both of my knees during my freshman year in college while playing basketball. I returned to play for Marquette University after a year of rehab on both knees. I was able to play three more years and was fortunate enough to play on the first Marquette women’s basketball team to make the NCAA tournament. It gave me first-hand experience being a patient rehabilitating from injury. That experience has been priceless in understanding what my patients go through before, during and after surgery. I decided to go into orthopedics during medical school and did a specialized year of arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgery. I have been active in the development of the sports medicine program in West Bend since I began my practice there in 2004.
