Orthopedic Surgery Residency SUNY Stony Brook, Spine Fellowship Training at Washington University, St. Louis. I have been in academic and private practice performing spine-only orthopedic surgery since 1997. My practice at Spine Specialty Center, in Memphis, TN, was established 2002 and continues to expand now serving patients in DeSoto county MS, and the greater Memphis area.I continue to work in the areas of research of spine diseases and treatments. Presently I am enrolled as one of the investigational centers for the DIAM FDA IDE study for back pain (a prospective, randomized clinical trial). Previous presentations and publications have centered around my training in spinal deformity, scoliosis, and spondylolisthesis.Currently, I continue to pursue interests in minimally invasive spine surgery and its application to both degenerative diseases as well as spinal deformity including scoliosis.
