My clinical practice is confined to Surgery of the Hand. I joined the medical staff of NSUH in 1980, when I entered practice, and have combined clinical hand surgery with teaching and research ever since. In 1995 I joined the medical staff at LIJMC. In 2011 I left private practice to join the fulltime NSUH-LIJMC Department of Orthopaedic Surgery as Program Director. Currently I treat patients with a broad range of hand problems from arthritis and deformity to congenital. I have expertise in reconstruction of patients with arthritis, paralysis, tendon ruptures, as well as treating acute sports injuries. I treat common hand/wrist problems such as: carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, Dupuytren's Disease, trigger finger, and benign tumors.

I have been active in national and regional professional organizations, having served on more than 20 committees of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery. Currently, I am on the ASSH annual meeting program committee, scientific exhibits committee, and Resident and Fellow Annual Meeting Committee. I was an officer of the NY Society for Surgery of the Hand, between 1996 and 2000, serving as President in my final year as an officer. I am involved in the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ SOM in many roles, currently on the Admissions Committee (non-core), as a Departmental Advisor to medical students interested in Orthopaedic Surgery, teaching extremities in Structure, as an Officer of the Faculty Council, and as serving as an "Uber-Mentor" in the Mentoring and Professionalism-In Training initiative. In addition to having a supervisory role overseeing research projects in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, I have been personally involved in clinical and basic science research, with currently ongoing projects on trigger finger and 3D bioprinting for osteocartilaginous defects. In regard to my outside academic activity, I have more than 30 peer review publications and over 150 podium presentations or faculty presentations at national or international courses and meetings. In respect to patient care I was recognized with an Arnold P. Gold Foundation Gold DOC award in 2015. I have been listed yearly in Castle Connelly's Best Doctors since 1998 and have received annual Patient Choice awards since 2010.
