Philosophy of Care
My philosophy as a spine surgeon is to provide you with a detailed understanding of both what is causing your neck and/or back symptoms and the different treatment options available to best alleviate your symptoms. Once you have a detailed understanding of your problem, we can decide on the best course of treatment together.  Ideally, the least invasive intervention that will successfully allow you to regain and maintain your desired lifestyle will be selected. Undergoing spine surgery can be a stressful process, but through shared decision making and my patient-centered care I am confident that you will feel comfortable before, during and after surgery.
