My goal is to bring the highest level of veterinary specialty care, with dedication to the horse and owner, in order to optimize the outcome of each individual case. In surgical cases, I aim to perform the most advanced and successful procedures with a high level of proficiency and attention to detail, resulting in the most successful outcome for each horse that I lay my hands on. For sports medicine cases, I aim to combine both experience and objective assessments to yield the most specific diagnosis for each patient with a performance deficit, provide the most specific treatment available, and allow each patient to return to performance at their highest level. My secondary goal is the advancement of over-all equine clinical care through lecturing to other veterinarians and mentoring interns and surgical residents at our hospital to a high level of clinical skill

Personal philosophy on our equine friends:
God blessed us with an amazing companion the horse. For thousands of years, they have been a faithful worker and friend to man. Their innate good nature and trust allowed us to take a wild flight animal and domesticate them. Since then, they have dedicated their entire lives for generation upon generation. They have carried heavy loads, pulled plows and wagons, literally carried us for miles on their backs, hunted with us, stood with us in war, worked cows with us, and cared for our children. They are eager to participate with us in so many of our recreation activities from racing, to endurance competitions, to rodeo, to dressage, to polo, to jumping and so many more. We could not ask for a more willing and devoted friend. In my eyes, we owe them a tremendous debt. As a very small part of this debt, I believe I owe them the absolute highest standard of medical and surgical care that can be provided. This belief is why I am here.
