Philosophy of care

I pride myself on taking a patient-centered approach to medicine. That involves us having a meaningful collaboration and provides me a deeper understanding of your condition. My mission is to improve your life through the least invasive manner possible, which includes medication, physical therapy and interventional modalities such as injections. When conservative options fail, I use evidence-based and literature-backed surgical intervention.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine because of my deep desire for a career that allows me to serve people in need within my community. Patients suffering from spine pathologies are especially in need of care, and I found that a specialty in orthopedic spine surgery enabled me to make a significant difference in people’s lives.

Community involvement

I have a passion for spending time within my community and giving educational and informational lectures to community groups and organizations, especially those who are underserved, underrepresented and have limited access to health care.

Personal interests

My priority in life is spending time with my family, including my wife and two children. I enjoy remaining physically active and occasionally playing a round of golf.
