My goal is to provide the highest quality of personal medical care in a warm, compassionate environment. I treat each patient as an individual with unique needs. Most often non-surgical pain management is best for you. When surgery is indicated, I then offer the most effective treatment for your condition. I strive to remain on the 'cutting edge' of spine surgery. All parts of the spine, including the neck (cervical spine), upper back (thoracic spine) and lower back (lumbar spine) are addressed. The range of problems treated includes the following: soft tissue and muscular ligament pain, disc herniations, disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, spinal instability, scoliosis, kyphosis, myelopathy, infections, tumors, and fractures Our competent professional staff of nurses, technicians and support personnel work hand in hand with the medical staff to ensure each person's visit to Midwest Orthopaedics / Illinois Bone & Joint Institute is as pleasant and productive as possible.
