About Me

I am a neurosurgeon with subspecialty training in complex spine surgery. I provide general neurosurgical care as well as comprehensive spine care of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. I chose medicine in general, and neurosurgery in particular, to align my interest in surgical care to improve patient's quality of life. I always strive to provide optimal care, while also continuously learning new ways to provide good outcomes while minimizing complications. I strive to provide professional care with honesty and integrity, and take time to ensure the patient understands my thought process and his or her plan of care.
