I am a physiatrist, a physician board certified in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. I am also board certified in Sports Medicine as well as Level 2 Accredited with the Colorado Department of Labor Worker’s Compensation Division.
My family and I are now proud residents of the Gunnison Valley. It felt like we couldn’t get here fast enough, but we took the long way around it seems. I attended the University Of Oklahoma College Of Medicine, completed my residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at Louisiana State University, and an Orthopedic Medicine Fellowship at the Kenner Center for Sports Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery. I have been Medical Director at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital in Colorado Springs and the Co-Medical Director of Rehabilitation at the Wenatchee Valley Medical Center in Wenatchee, WA. Most recently, I was a partner at Aspen Orthopaedic Associates in the Roaring Fork Valley where I continue to provide Physiatry services.
Physiatry is a unique specialty. The scope is broad and can involve anything from hospital-based care of those with brain and spinal cord injuries to pain management in the clinic setting. At Peak Physiatry, our area of emphasis is non-operative orthopedics – interventional spine and sports medicine. Our focus is you, your goals, and your quality of life, in addition to your pain or injury. We use advanced medical technology in office such as EMG and musculoskeletal ultrasound in addition to a thorough physical exam to diagnose. We employ cutting-edge medical treatments such as fluoroscopically-guided spine procedures and regenerative medicine in addition to time-honored soft tissue and exercise-based therapies. We value patient-driven outcomes, a team approach to achieve them, and the idea that exercise is medicine. We want you to feel better, move well, and play more.
