My philosophy of care is first and foremost to educate and inform my patients about their condition. Understanding their spine conditions empowers patients to better manage and overcome their ailment. I treat disorders of the spine on a continuum starting with nonoperative modalities first and resorting to surgery only after exhausting other modalities. This treatment philosophy and my sub-specialty training allows my patients to achieve an optimal outcome. I enjoy performing both operative and non-operative management of orthopedic spine issues so my patients can rest assured they will get access to full service care.
Because I am very active, I value maintaining physical function so I gravitated toward Orthopedic Surgery. I truly enjoy functional restoration. A few of my activities include mountain biking, surfing, skiing, snowboarding, fishing, kayaking and culinary cooking
