Care Philosophy
I care for my patients as individuals and involve them in their individualized treatment plans. I believe that patients should be educated as much as possible about their own bodies, all possible treatment options and the likely impact treatments may have on their long-term physical activity. I offer treatment options that are specific to not only each patient’s spine condition, but also to their individual goals for their life and health. I am a surgeon, but I do make sure that my patients are aware of all conservative and surgical treatment options. When a patient does progress to surgery, I offer the most up-to-date treatment options with the patient’s long-term function in mind.
