Why did you join AAOS?

To interact with my peers in the most efficient way.

How do you define success?

My patients’ smiles and their words of appreciation.

Who is your biggest inspiration and why?

Again, I would say my patients, for their perseverance through their injuries or chronic musculoskeletal disorders, and their willingness to follow my advice in order to get better and go back to their daily activities pain free.

What do you love most about AAOS?

I have access to evidence-based information regarding my profession and I’m able to interact with other orthopaedic surgeons.

What advice would you give to new members of AAOS?

Raise your voice and create awareness for AAOS in your country/community, so more Members will join, and we can have inputs from many more different practitioners. 

Tell us a fun fact about yourself that not many people know?

I have an IG account for my English bulldog that gets more attention than my professional IG handle!
