Growing up, I was a student–athlete and played multiple sports. I was no stranger to injuries and the various doctors and surgeons who took care of me. I first became interested in podiatry because many of my injuries were to my feet and ankles. A family friend who was a nationally renowned podiatrist further inspired me to ultimately pursue this specialty.
At NYU Langone Podiatry Associates—Upper West Side and NYU Langone Ambulatory Care West Side, I help people get back on their feet, so they can go back to doing the activities they enjoy. I specialize in the treatment of bunions, hammertoe, foot and ankle sprains, stress fractures, and diabetic foot ulcers. I have extensive experience in the treatment of foot and ankle conditions and perform elective and reconstructive foot surgery. I am also specially trained in revision surgery and the management of complex foot deformities.
I have published numerous articles about foot and ankle conditions and am a frequent lecturer on advances in foot and ankle surgery. I am currently involved in several research projects, including one focused on innovative bunion surgery. Other projects focus on peroneal tendon pathology, which affects the ankle and back of the foot, and hallux limitus, a condition affecting the joint of the big toe.
I am board certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association.
