Orthopedic Expert Witness Expertise
In my long clinical and administrative career, I have had the opportunity to participate in clinical research, serve as consultant to the orthopedic industries, as a speaker for the pharmaceutical industry, and, as an orthopedic expert witness. In doing so I have had the opportunity to work with nationally recognized leaders in the field of orthopedic surgery. I maintain the highest level of continuing medical education in my areas of expertise. I have been honored as “Top Doc” in Phoenix Magazine, “Best Doctors in America,” and in “Ranking Arizona” as a leader in my field.

I have served on the speakers’ bureau of many pharmaceutical firms and have delivered “grand rounds” for my internal medicine colleagues on this topic. I currently lecture on this several times a year to hospital medical and nursing staff.
