Clinical Interests
I am passionate about treating all spinal disorders. Some of my specific clinical and research interests include: Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery; Cervical Deformity; Pediatric Scoliosis; Adult Spinal Deformity; Proximal Junctional Kyphosis; Degenerative Conditions of the Spine; Radiculopathy; Myelopathy

Care Philosophy
No two patients are the same which is why I firmly believe in a team mentality when it comes to your spine condition. Your specific goals and expectations are important and I believe that nonsurgical options in the treatment of neck or back pain are important and effective. However, when it comes to surgery, I enjoy discussing the surgical options including traditional and minimally invasive methods depending on individualized factors. My desire is for my patients to be actively involved in their spine health and to work closely in achieving their goals.

Personal Interests
I enjoy spending time with my wife, 2 daughters and son. I am a Colorado native and love the outdoor access that we have in our beautiful state.
