I strive to offer the highest quality of surgical care to all my patients to alleviate suffering and improve function. I prefer non-surgical management over more invasive measures. With my expertise, and using innovative surgical approaches, I work with a team of specialists using advanced equipment (including navigation) to perform high-risk surgeries with significantly increased safety and precision.
