I work with the orthoneuro spine team of Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics. I am a fellowship trained spine surgeon. In my fellowship, I trained with both orthopaedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons to do what I do today. I specialize in helping people who have problems in the neck, upper back, or low back including disc herniations, spinal stenosis, deformity, infection, and tumor.
