MY BACKGROUND

When I began my practice in 1987, I made the decision to maintain a personalized and caring approach to the evaluation, management, and treatment of adult lumbar spinal conditions. I have kept my practice independent so that I can personally manage all of my patients' care and ensure the highest level of attention to detail.

I am a member of the North American Spine Society, which means I am a peer reviewed orthopaedic spine surgeon. I have been a member for over 30 years. 

I perform all of my procedures at Duke Regional Hospital.

Reach out today and let's get to work solving your lower back issue.
