Relevant Experiences

I am a practicing orthopedist who does participate in medical-legal.

During my specialty training in orthopedics, I did focus on RSD as an interest, and I cared for a group of orthopedic patients suspected to have this syndrome with some success; patient’s presentation is rarely classic, and it has been debated for a number of years. I have continued to see these type of patients in my general orthopedic practice over the last twenty years, but much more rarely than in training. I participated with OHSU university as as associate professor for a short time before moving on into private practice.
