Inspired by my grandfather who was a doctor, I always had an interest in the medical field. I subspecialize in the spine, including adult and pediatric deformity (scoliosis), degenerative conditions, trauma and orthopedic trauma (complex fracture care). I have a special interest in spinal deformities and spend a significant amount of time every year working with the world’s most renowned spinal deformity surgeons to gain the most up-to-date skills.
During my orthopedic surgery residency at University of Southern California, USC was an extremely busy level 1 trauma center. I gained my passion for orthopedic trauma at that time, and it continues to this day. I am the orthopedic surgery trauma liaison for Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, a level 2 trauma center. It has become my mission to make trauma care in Utah Valley the best it can be.
I find joy in helping people and seek to do what is necessary to improve their health. I place great importance on communication with patients every time I see them. At our clinic, I enjoy my partnership with other physicians in the division, where we each have our own niche and rely on each other. I know that people who come to Revere Health have the opportunity to receive comprehensive care and also benefit from our excellent facilities.
Outside the clinic, I enjoy time with family. I have seven children and 15 grandchildren. I enjoy traveling, hiking and playing and listening to music. I play several instruments including the organ, keyboard and bass guitar.
