About

Bio

I am a Neurosurgeon with an Orthopedic spine surgery fellowship. So I provide both neurosurgical and orthopedic spinal perspectives; this allows me to deliver the most optimal care for my patients. I have a special interest in minimally invasive spinal surgery as well as complex deformity surgery (adolescent and adult).

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.
