About

Bio

I am a practicing Board Certified Orthopedic Spine surgeon that specialize in Minimal Invasive Spinal Surgery (MISS). Over the years I have pioneered MISS. I completed training to perform Robotic Spinal surgery. Additionally, I have a physical therapy degree and believe in the benefit of exercises to assist in preventing and enhancing surgery.

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.
