About Me

Although I am a trained surgeon in Orthopedics, and have been doing spine surgery for over 30 years, I do believe very strongly in conservative treatment. In so many years of treating spine problems, I have come to the conclusion that in many situations surgery, and particularly spinal fusion can be avoided, and best is to be avoided.

His new receptionist is not good. Slow, forgetful and should not assist patients. The doctor is great.
