About

Bio

I am a neurosurgeon who specializes in spine surgery. In addition to neurosurgical training I completed a combined orthopedics/neurosurgery fellowship in spine surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. I strive to provide my patients with the best treatment options for their spine problems. I believe that surgery may not be the correct treatment option for every patient but it can be highly beneficial in properly selected patients. If surgery is not appropriate I work with physiatrists, pain specialists, and therapists that can assist the patient with their spine problem. I also maintain a general neurosurgery practice that includes surgical management of brain trauma, brain tumor, and other neurosurgical disorders.

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.
