Neurosurgery | Male

Care Philosophy

My practice is very personal in nature. I tailor treatments that are as individual as my patients' needs. I take a very patient-centered, conservative approach so patients don't waste time on treatments they don't need and can focus on a faster, more efficient recovery. I allow plenty of time for evaluating patients, reviewing scans together, and educating them on all their treatment options in a relaxed setting.

Garland, TX |
When it comes to brain surgery, needless to say I was hesitant to trust someone with the job. After receiving multiple opinions, Dr. Michael was clearly the surgeon for me. He made me feel comfortable, safe, and made sure I completely understood everything.
in Dallas, TX |
After steroids, physical therapy and many other things to help cope; my body literally gave up on me & I was no longer able to walk much less move without being in pain. I decided to go ahead with the emergency spinal surgery. I was so scared and nervous, when Dr. Michael introduced himself I immediately began to cry. He helped ease my worries, checked in with me before and after the surgery. His P.A. was also amazing! I am back to my old self & finally enjoying physical activities with my kids!
