I seek to offer my patients effective relief of pain and neurological dysfunction when conservative and non-operative treatments have been sub-optimal. I seek to educate patients completely regarding all treatment options prior to choosing any particular treatment course. It is my goal to get patients back to work, life and play as completely and quickly as possible.
I am a classic car fanatic and enjoy working on and driving my ’65 mustang when the weather permits. Having grown up surfing, I’ve made the transition to mountain living and am now an avid snowboarder.
