“I knew since I was in the sixth grade that I wanted not only to be a doctor but also to be a surgeon. I became particularly interested in spinal surgery during my orthopedic residency."

“As technology continues to evolve, we are able to tackle complex spinal problems using less invasive techniques and advanced anesthesia to promote reduced hospital stays and speedier recoveries. Robotics and highly sophisticated imaging have improved diagnostic accuracy, surgical precision and patient safety."

“My singular goal and hope is to decrease pain and suffering and improve the overall quality of life of my patients. I listen to my patients and always look out for their best interests.”
