NEW SEASON, NEW CHANGE....

After 10 years at NYU, I will be leaving to become chief of pediatric orthopedics at Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School. Having graduated from Rutgers in 2002, it is incredibly exciting to come back. I am looking forward to working with old friends and making new ones, most importantly my new colleagues in pediatric orthopedics Dr. O. Folorunsho Edobor-Osula and Dr. Neil Kaushal. Together we are looking forward to serving the New Jersey community around Rutgers! More news to come as I settle in on November 1. Please contact me through this website for details such as the office phone number, location, and insurances.
