Biography & Education

Biography
I chose a career in spine surgery because I enjoy the challenge of diagnosing and treating spinal conditions. It is very rewarding to see the quality of a patients life significantly improve with proper diagnosis and treatment. I spend considerable time listening to and examining my patients to accurately determine the cause of their symptoms. I encourage patients to be active in their medical care. I enjoy educating my patients about their spine in order for them to make more informed decisions. My approach to treating the spine is to start with the most conservative modalities. I specialize in treating a full range of conditions affecting the entire spine including degenerative changes, trauma, and scoliosis. I exhaust all non-operative treatments before considering more invasive options. When surgery is indicated, I spend considerable time explaining the procedure to my patients and making sure they feel comfortable throughout the process. I stay current with the latest advances in treatment options in order to provide my patients with the highest level of care. I consider myself to have strong moral and ethical character. I treat my patients as I would want myself, my family, or my friends treated. From a technical standpoint, I take great pride in my work and accept no less than perfection. I strive to provide my patients with exceptional care and I am honored to have the opportunity to improve their quality of life.
