I welcome the opportunity to serve the Southwest Washington community. I have treated patients from all walks of life, including everyone from physicians to dock workers, from lawyers to loggers, from employed to unemployed, youth to the most elderly. I treat many conditions of the spine, with a particular emphasis on deformities, both minor and major. I have been in the same practice for 17 years and have been involved with scientific clinical research. I am also an inventor with a patent for a new, more anatomic artificial disk.
