I became interested in orthopedics after my own knee surgeries. I underwent reconstructive surgery on both of my knees during my freshman year in college while playing basketball. I returned to play for Marquette University after a year of rehab on both knees. I was able to play three more years and was fortunate enough to play on the first Marquette women’s basketball team to make the NCAA tournament. It gave me first-hand experience being a patient rehabilitating from injury. That experience has been priceless in understanding what my patients go through before, during and after surgery. I decided to go into orthopedics during medical school and did a specialized year of arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgery. I have been active in the development of the sports medicine program in West Bend since I began my practice there in 2004.
