Professional Philosophy
My spine fellowship trained me in the diagnosis and management of disorders involving the entire spine including trauma, tumors, infection, deformity, and degenerative problems. Emphasis was placed on understanding the natural history of various spinal disorders and included extensive training in minimally invasive, technologically advanced anterior and posterior spine surgery. I now specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic and acute spinal disorders as well as all types of back problems. From strains and sprains to the most complex spine problems, such as herniated discs, scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, and stenosis, I employ the latest techniques that medical science has to offer.

I believe in using the least invasive treatment option possible. Non-invasive treatments include pain management, rehabilitation, and physical and occupational therapy. When surgical intervention is warranted, I use the latest in technology and innovation to perform the least invasive surgery possible with the most effective and safe results. Minimally invasive microsurgical techniques are used on an inpatient or outpatient basis for certain interventions while major surgical capabilities are available for more complicated problems.

All of these elements combine to provide my patients with the most advanced and integrated care available for spine and back problems. Regardless of the condition my patients have or what type of treatment is most appropriate for them, I will deliver clinically proven and consistently excellent results. I can assure you that I treat my patients with the utmost compassion and respect and look forward to the privilege of participating in your care.
