About Us

Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon

Fellowship Trained in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy

Howdy! After training and practicing all over the great State of Texas, my wonderful wife, Erin, and I, along with our four children, have decided to get back home to the Texas Panhandle. I was born in Amarillo, and we both were fortunate to meet and grow up in Perryton. We love the sprawling sunsets and friendly waves, handshakes, and hugs of the Panhandle, and I look forward to treating you and your family's orthopedic needs with that same warmth and compassion. Our mission is simple: To practice state-of-the-art, precise orthopedics for Amarillo and the entire Texas Panhandle, and to treat each patient like we would our own friends and family.
