I like taking on complex problems, caring for people and contributing to their lives. That's what drew me to spine surgery. My daily encounters with patients have inspired me to develop new techniques and technology-and I'm one of only two surgeons in the region chosen to perform two revolutionary procedures.

These new techniques-motion segment preservation and artificial disc placement-have been designed to eliminate the need to fuse the patient's lumbar spine. That means simpler surgeries, quicker recovery-and far more freedom. Whatever the challenge, I'm here to face it with you. Together, we'll find the right treatment that leads to the best possible outcome.
