About

Bio

I suffered from back pain at an early age of 19 and became interested in orthopedic spine surgery as a result. Today I strive to educate on spine injury prevention and good spine hygiene promotion by first recommending conservative treatments before recommending surgery. I want my patients to have the best quality of life they can have. I don't want them to be timid when coming to see me because I am a surgeon. I can and will suggest alternative conservative treatments first only if my patients don't suffer from an acute neuro deficit. At The Minimally Invasive Spine Institute, we believe in holistically treating the patient. We have Physcial Therapy and Occupatinal Therapy on-site as well as interventional pain management doctors and chiropractors. If you suffer from back pain and want a doctor to listen and spend that extra time with you, come visit us at MISI. www.zerospinepain.com
