Philosophy of Care
I have been treating foot and ankle disorders for over 20 years. It is something that I am passionate about. The ability to practice foot and ankle surgery at the highest level within a collaborative multidisciplinary setting, is what most attracted me to this practice at The Palo Alto Foundation, Medical Group.
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. I have lived in different parts of the U.S., and now feel so fortunate to call the East Bay, my home. My family and I love Northern California and all it has to offer. I also have a passion for exercise and the outdoors. I understand how important it is for my patients to want to be active and stay active and function without pain. It is one of the reasons I pursued podiatric surgery as a career and it is a driving force in my quest to care for patients.
My philosophy for treating foot and ankle pain and deformity is rooted in identifying and addressing the underlying causes. Treating only the symptoms without regard for the etiology usually leads to frustration. I approach the management of any condition by applying an evidence based approach to the treatment plan. I have a particular interest in understanding and treating cartilage and tendon disorders and traumatic injuries of the foot and ankle.
I have also been involved throughout my career in education. I was involved in residency training through the Kaiser San Francisco Bay Area Foot and ankle residency program for more than 18 years. I am also an adjunct clinical professor at the Podiatric Medical School in Oakland. Another one of my interests has been doing clinical research in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery and have been fortunate to author original articles and textbooks and lecture both nationally and internationally on this interesting subject. I am board-certified in foot and ankle surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and am a fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.
