Care Philosophy

Each patient is an individual person, and their spinal disorder is as well; I strive to develop a treatment plan with each person that is specifically tailored to treat their disorder. I base this plan on scientific evidence, my experience and the patient's wishes. Being extensively trained in spinal disorders, both in adults and children, I am able to determine a clear diagnosis, select the appropriate treatment , and deliver the best result to the patient.
