🇺🇸 Seattle, Washington State, USA
I received my MD degree from the University of Ottawa, followed by residency training in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of British Columbia and additional fellowship training at Boston Children’s Hospital in pediatric Orthopaedics and Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Canada in Musculoskeletal Oncology. In addition, I completed a Master’s degree in clinical epidemiology at the University of British Columbia and a certificate program in Quality Improvement at the University of Washington. Following fellowship training, I practiced at the University of Washington/Seattle Cancer Care Alliance for over 6 years focusing on treating patients with benign and malignant bone and soft tissue tumors.
My focus is on healthcare transformation through improvement in healthcare value. Value is determined by increasing the quality of care and decreasing the cost. These goals can be reached through initiatives focused on both patients and healthcare providers. My goal is to address the patient and provider aspects that will lead to improved value in healthcare. Working with others, we can reach this goal across the world, leading to general wellbeing and allowing each of us to strive for and reach our goals in life. A central concept of this goal is to incorporate best practices from diverse areas, such as traditional medical care, Eastern principles of care, and related sciences, such as sleep and recovery, mindset training, nutrition, and peak performance. The combination of these elements will create a holistic model of care that will transform healthcare!
