Welcome to my Comb in the Urinal site!
I was born in Washington, D.C. in 1940, but spent most of my early education experiences in the Northeast attending prep schools. I graduated the University of Pennsylvania in 1962 and attended George Washington Medical School and graduated with my MD in 1966.
My medical post-graduate education was spent at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia as an intern and resident in General Surgery from 1966-1968. I specialized in Orthopaedic Surgery and performed my residency at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital from 1968-1971. From 1971-1973, I was a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy stationed at the St. Albans Naval Hospital in Queens, NY.
I returned to the Washington, DC area to set up the private practice of Orthopaedic Surgery in the Northern Virginia area. I am a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a founding member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons, and a member of the Arthroscopy Association of North America. I have published over 40 papers in the medical literature, mostly on the shoulder and its conditions. I have also written chapters in several orthopaedic related textbooks and presented many papers at medical conferences as well as participating in and moderating panels of various shoulder symposiums
I am a Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. I am now retired, and my interest in writing is blooming.
My first book, Man's Unofficial Guide to the Use of His Garage, was a labor of love for my garage. I decided to incorporate all I had learned from 30 years of owning homes with garages into one book, and I wrote it while I was still in active practice. Needless to say, it took quite a while to get it written and published. It is a humorous yet quite informative guide to help men organize the garage into their castle. "The Comb in the Urinal" was as a result of a runaway active imagination after actually seeing a comb laying in an urinal. The other stories just seemed to flow from there. My writing style brings the reader into the story and makes him feel as if he were really present as the events unfold, and the twists of events at the end of each chapter will interest you. I know you will enjoy the stories, and I wish everyone who reads the book will send me their thoughts and keep in touch.
My next literary foray is into the world of the fictional novel, a psychological thriller, the title of which is "You Dear, Sweet Man" When it will be finished is anybody's guess, but I think this is one novel you will not put down. I certainly will let you know about it!
Also, I have written an educational book for everyone,
The Way I See It:
A Head to Toe Guide in Common Orthopaedic Conditions.
It is now available on Amazon for $17.95.

I am looking for an agent who will sponsor me in my endeavors.
