Care Philosophy: I provide integrated, compassionate care to ensure my patients get back to their desired level of activity in a timely manner. I believe in educating my patients to ensure they are able to make well informed decisions about their own recovery.
Care Philosophy: I believe in a comprehensive approach to patient care. Working with internists, anesthesiologists, neurologists, radiologists, psychiatrists, and pediatricians, all avenues for alternatives to surgery are explored. With individual patients' goals in mind, if surgery is necessary, I will perform spine surgery utilizing the most modern, effective, and safe techniques tailored for each individual patient.
