About Me

I am a fellowship-trained spine surgeon. My clinical practice involves the surgical treatment of adult patients with injuries and deformities of the spine, including a broad spectrum of degenerative, oncological, infectious, and traumatic spinal disorders. I regularly perform complex spine surgeries for scoliosis and major circumferential spinal reconstruction for spinal tumors and infections, as well as other simpler surgical procedures such as artificial disc replacement, vertebroplasties and kyphoplasties, placement of dorsal column stimulation systems, anterior cervical discectomies and fusion, and lumbar microdiscectomies and fusions with a special focus on minimally invasive techniques. I routinely treat a significant number of patients with polytrauma and acute spinal injuries. As a medical expert witness, I routinely provide services to both plaintiffs and defendants in medical malpractice and personal injury cases.
