I specialize in upper extremity cumulative, traumatic, and post-operative injuries. I also coordinate our occupational therapy student program.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my growing family. We are especially busy in the spring/summer for the baseball season. We enjoy visiting family in Northern Wisconsin with boating and quad riding. To relax I enjoy a good book and spending time outdoors. I have a passion for gardening and canning/freezing our own food.

I specialize in sports based orthopedics and post-operative rehabilitation. Assisting my patient's return to their prior level of function is my ultimate goal.
When I’m not treating patients, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I spend most of my time outdoors camping and fishing. I frequently enjoy sporting events and various restaurants with my wife and son. I grew up in the Winnebago area and look forward to continuing to assist the local community and assist with all of its rehabilitation needs.

My professional interests include the treatment of surgical and non-surgical musculoskeletal
injuries of the Shoulders, Knees and Ankles, with a special emphasis in sports related injuries.
My goal is to get my patients back to being functional and enjoying their lives again whether it
be getting back to the golf course, gardening, playing with their children/grandchildren or
competitive/ weekend warrior sports competitions.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. Getting outdoors and being
active with trail hiking, running and participating in or watching almost all types of sports.
