About Us

  • "My goal is to thoroughly evaluate my patients’ spinal condition. Using the most up-to-date clinical information, I advise my patients on which treatment will be most beneficial in the long term."

    "I have a conservative philosophy with regard to surgery. Surgery is advised only when all non-surgical methods have proven futile, and where there is a reasonable expectation that surgery will improve the patients’ outcome."
