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

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Get a MRI & see a Dr: Mri's see nerve and disc. If you have a pinched nerve, an MRI will be able to tell your doctor that.

Pain Mgmt Dr: If you are not a surgical candidate, you can seek a pain management doctor to help with your chronic pain. There are medications, different spine injections and even dorsal column stimulators that can help with chronic pain. Don't give up, talk about your options with either you ortho spine doctor or your family doctor. They can help guide and refer you where you need to go.

Yes: Have you had a recent MRI to diagnose nerve impingement? If not having weakness in legs or incontinence, try conservative treatments such as: rest, hot/cold compresses to lower back even if the pain radiates to butt or leg, nsaids, physical therapy and activity modification. If you have tried these, there are prescription nerve medications out their that your pcp or spine specialist can recommend.
