Biography & Education

I believe in a comprehensive, analytical approach to spine and orthopaedic problems. I use both nonoperative and operative techniques to achieve the optimal outcome for patients with an emphasis on the least invasive method to achieve an excellent outcome. I am a strong advocate for patient education and autonomy.
