I strive to pro­vide the right treat­ment options for each indi­vid­ual patient. Devel­op­ing per­son­al­ized care cen­tered around each patien­t’s goals, aligned with out­come-dri­ven, evi­dence-based med­i­cine is fun­da­men­tal to my phi­los­o­phy. My goal is to reduce your pain and improve your func­tion so that you may focus on liv­ing your life rather than man­ag­ing your con­di­tion. For­tu­nate­ly, most neck and back relat­ed prob­lems can be resolved with non-sur­gi­cal care. Our inte­grat­ed team will guide your treat­ment and effi­cient­ly coor­di­nate your care. If surgery is nec­es­sary, I am trained in both cut­ting-edge open and min­i­mal­ly inva­sive tech­niques for the treat­ment of var­i­ous spine con­di­tions. I spe­cial­ize in the treat­ment of degen­er­a­tive and trau­mat­ic spine con­di­tions with par­tic­u­lar inter­est in min­i­mal­ly inva­sive, motion pre­serv­ing, and robot­ic-assist­ed spine surgery. Whether your goal is to return to pro­fes­sion­al sport or lift­ing your grand­child, I will treat you with com­pas­sion­ate diligence.
