Care Philosophy

Back and neck problems are very common and cause severe pain and disability for many people. Nerves often become pinched or irritated causing severe arm and leg pain, numbness and weakness. When medications, therapy, exercises, injections and other nonsurgical treatments fail, surgery may be required. It requires a thorough evaluation to diagnose the problem and determine whether a minimally invasive surgery or a traditional surgery can be done to correct the problem. Many patients suffer from failed spinal surgery. This can be avoided by correctly diagnosing the problem and performing the correct operation for the problem. In patients who have the misfortune to suffer from failed spine surgery, thorough evaluation is required to diagnose the cause of the failed surgery. Correctly diagnosing the cause of the failed surgery may allow correction with corrective surgery.

The best doctor I've ever had!!! So sad that he has now retired. He did a 2 level ACDF on me in November 2015. I healed beautifully. He is very patient and compassionate. Miss him terribly!
