Overview

As a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeon, I recognize that every patient is unique, and that every neck problem or back problem requires a conservative, thoughtful solution. Some of the patients I see do not require my surgical expertise, and these patients are carefully diagnosed and then referred to the non-operative spine specialists as a best strategy. For those patients that do require a surgical solution, whether straight-forward or complex, I believe in using modern, least-invasive surgical techniques to help patients heal and achieve their very best.
