Philosophy of Care: "My approach is to combine excellence with compassion. Spine surgery is a complex field so I apply myself to each case fully. Also, spinal disorders cause anxiety for many patients so I spend time education my patients so they may make the right decision. I believe surgery should be done when all non-operative treatments have failed. I believe that this selective and compassionate approach has resulted in an excellent reputation and many satisfied patients."
