"I love what I do. I love to see patients with terrible neck or back pain, regain their quality of life, either through non-operative measures or surgery. Most of the time, patients get better on their own and don't require surgery. But if surgery is needed, it helps patients to know that I have performed over 4,000 spinal surgeries. Performing minimally invasive surgery when needed."
