  • About Me:

    Just as Michael Jordan was meant to play basketball, I know I was meant to be a neurosurgeon. I see neurosurgery as my calling – not just a job. I consider every day as an opportunity and give my best as I help people deal with their most difficult problems in the brain, neck and spine and work to make a major improvement in their lives.

    With over 20 years in practice, I’ve performed more than 1,400 anterior cervical surgeries. I pride myself on being able to openly communicate with my patients and provide a medical experience that is second to none. Every patient is unique, so the decisions that go into treating each person are unique as well. As your surgeon, my philosophy is to educate you with all possible options, discuss the risks and benefits of them and decide together what the best course of action is for you.
