My Passion for Healthcare

The practice of medicine is the perfect blend of problem solving and human interaction. I gravitated to the biological sciences in high school and in college, and discovered a passion for understanding the human mind. My specialty combines my love of how the mind works and how the body moves. It was a natural fit. Back pain will happen; it is inevitable. The key is to be able to coexist with the natural phenomenon that is back pain. I help people achieve that goal.

  2. Low Back Pain, Chronic and Acute
  3. Neck Pain
  4. EMG/NCS for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

My Clinical Focus

I love being part of a comprehensive spine care practice. I respect and rely on my team in the treatment of back and neck pain. I work closely with my fellow surgeons and physical therapists to ensure an effective and efficient management of back pain patients. While I am also a pain management specialist, I do not believe that pain medications are the answer for long term treatment of back pain. The answer is complex and addresses lifestyle, nutrition, stress management and exercise. I try to emphasize these issues with each patient.
