I am a board certified Neurological Spine Surgeon. I served as director of spinal surgery at Sutter of Sacramento and also served as volunteer faculty at UC Davis.
I helped developed the spine program in Sacramento with a multidisciplinary approach of both conservative and surgical care and I am well versed in all the latest technologies from artificial disks to minimally invasive spine surgery.
I am also involved with improving spine technology and can preform cervical and lumbar laminectomies, diskectomies, fusions, artificial disks and some spinal deformity procedures. I have particular interest in spinal injuries related to sports.
