Find a Orthopedics Specialist
Comprehensive Care for Your Bones, Joints and Muscles
It began on the sidelines of a Pop Warner Football Game- sharing the experience with a sports medicine physician at the age of 9. I saw the future of a fun and rewarding career. Fast-forward to a premedical education completed at Emory University along with the many externships with sports medicine physicians of local high schools (Dr. Ronald Goldberg) and professional teams.
My interest in anatomy and sports medicine directed me to the orthopedic profession. After completing medical school at UMDNJ-SOM, currently known as Rowan University, and an orthopedic surgical residency within the current Jefferson Hospital System, I knew I wanted to further my education as an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine. I was fortunate to be one of the 2 surgeons selected to the University of Pennsylvania- Graduate Hospital Sports Medicine Fellowship Program. I had an exciting year which began with my assisting Randall Cunningham off Lambeau Field in Green Bay with an unfortunate knee injury. Throughout this fellowship year of training, I worked directly with team physicians as an assistant orthopedic surgeon for the Eagles and Flyers. Upon completion of the fellowship program, I had the opportunity to relocate to Jersey Shore, where I now reside with my family in Longport, New Jersey.
I founded Pace Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in the fall of 1994. I was the first orthopedic surgeon fellowship trained in the subspeciality of Sports Medicine in Atlantic and Cape May Counties. In addition to working with the Eagles and Flyers, I was team physician for the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies ECHL Hockey team and continue as an orthopedic consultant for Stockton University.
My boutique practice has been extremely rewarding and has allowed me to provide personal care to my patients through the years. My wife and I raised our children here and are proud to live in this unique Shore community.
