I created this website to discuss injuries, injury treatments and injury prevention with athletes and active people so that you can stay healthy and perform your best. It has never been my intention to use it to promote my orthopedic surgery practice. However, I often get questions from people here in Charleston and all around the world asking if they can come see me as a patient. I would like to explain my practice and what injuries I treat in case you would like to come to Charleston to see me as a patient.
