Clinical Interest for Patients
My interests are minimally-invasive spinal surgery, motion preserving spinal surgery (including cervical & lumbar artificial discs), and SI joint dysfunction.
The challenging part of spine surgery is taking the time to correlate imaging, diagnostic tests, symptoms, and exam findings. By taking this extra step on the front end, it helps to ensure good outcomes on the back end. Spine surgery is more than just going after an abnormal MRI.
