Welcome to NYOH/Columbia Orthopedics! I am honored to serve as the 10th chair in the near 160-year history of our storied department. Leaders such as Russell Hibbs, Frank Stinchfield, Harold Dick, and, most recently, Louis Bigliani have led the department to national and international acclaim.

Our patient-centered focus has always been the hallmark of our department and I am proud of the members of our faculty and staff who continue that tradition today. Please take some time to navigate through our website and find exactly what you are looking for - experts in every orthopedic subspecialty, easy-to-navigate features to locate the office nearest you, the opportunity to make online appointment requests with any of our providers - and many more features designed to ease your experience.
