Provider Expertise

Clinical Interest for Patients

I treat a large spectrum of non-surgical sports and spine conditions including sports-related concussion, sports injuries, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, herniated discs, and radiculopathy. I'm trained in the use spinal injections, peripheral joint injection therapy, and EMG/NCS. Previously serving as a member of the University of Washington Sports and Spine Physicians and a founding member of the Seattle Sports Concussion Program, I've cared for athletes at all levels of participation from adolescents to adults and from amateurs to professionals.


Care Philosophy

I work with patients to create individualized treatment plans to help them reach their goals, whether it be recovery from injury, maintenance of chronic conditions, or overall performance improvement.
