I have been in practice in the Tampa Bay area since 1993. My practice has evolved into a personalized orthopaedic practice with a concentrated interest in outpatient spine surgery. As of 2016, I no longer participate in any insurance programs, but we try to help our patients utilize any of their out of network benefits. As of July, 2019, I no longer perform surgery, but have an active practice counseling patients on second opinions and non surgical management of spine and orthopaedic problems.
