Clinical Interest for Patients
My main clinical interests include fractures, hip dysplasia or hip "clicks" in infants and children, sports injuries, scoliosis, problems with walking or the shape of the legs, and foot and ankle problems, with a special interest in clubfoot.
Helping kids get back to doing all the fun things they want to do is the best thing about being a pediatric orthopedist. I enjoy getting to know the kids and their families, and helping them understand and get through their injury or problem.
In my spare time, I enjoy tennis, gardening, and spending time with my husband and three kids. In between the kids' sports committments, we enjoy sking and hiking together.
In addition to research presentations at my professional organization, the Pediatric Orthopedic Society of North America, I have given CME talks to pediatric groups about fractures, sports injuries, and clubfoot.
