I am an Opioid Sparing Orthopedic Surgeon that specializes in treatment of the knee and shoulder. I am a member of Governor Bakers Pain Management Access program commission. I have been the Head Team Physician for UMASS Lowell for over 25 years. My Opioid Sparing approach to orthopedics led me to become a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. My continued belief in alternative pain management strategies led me to become the Chief Medical Officer and founder of OrthoLazer Orthopedic Laser Centers. At OrthoLazer Orthopedic Laser centers we are using MLS M8 laser therapy to treat all types of acute and chronic orthopedic pain. The treatments are simple painless and take approximately 10 minutes. We are successfully treating difficult to treat problems such as carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, arthritis of all major joints, as well as neck and back pain. Laser treatment is a great alternative option for patients that are looking to avoid surgery. Laser is also helpful in reducing pain and swelling from acute injuries and helps to get athletes back on the field faster.
