My expertise involves both surgical and non-surgical treatment of the spine. I treat the entire spine, including cervical, thoracic, and lumbar areas. I specialize in minimally invasive spine surgery and frequently teach other surgeons how to do this. I am also involved in spine research and am currently designing a new artificial disc replacement.

Doctor Quote

My approach to spinal problems is very systematic. The spine is a complicated area, but once a clear diagnosis is made, treatment options become clear. The key is to make a correct diagnosis. My preference is to save surgery as a last resort.
