He was Past President of the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association and Past Board Member of the American Podiatric Medical Association.

He has performed well over five thousand surgeries in his career and has lectured both nationally and internationally on wound care and surgical procedures.  He is only one of a few surgeons who performs total ankle implants for his patients and enjoys difficult cases to enable his patients to ambulate pain free.  He specializes in Wound Care as well; healing wounds that other facilities have passed on treating.  He believes in a team approach to medicine stating, “without key players on our health care team working together, there is no way the patient can cross over the goal line to achieve a healthier lifestyle.”
