A New Year, A New Contributor to the Spine Blog

Happy New Year! I’m excited to introduce myself as a new contributor to the Spine Center blog, joining Dr. David Lundin.  I am a fellowship-trained, board-certified spine surgeon and the Medical Co-Director of The Spine Center at Valley Medical Center. I look forward to sharing my point-of-view, and responding to your questions on issues related to your neck and back.

Some people assume surgeons are quick to prescribe surgery to patients, but my approach is to suggest other treatments first, such as physical therapy, spinal injections, medications or massage. If surgery is warranted, I perform decompressions, disc replacement, scoliosis correction or spinal fusion to help patients regain their maximum potential. My special interest is in treating young adults with scoliosis, and when possible, using the latest technologies to reduce the “footprint” of spinal surgery.

As Medical Co-Directors of The Spine Center, Dr. Lundin and I have developed an outstanding orthopedic- and neuro-spine program and are continually working to improve the patient experience – from how you are treated in the office, to your care in the hospital, and post-surgery rehabilitation. The Spine Center is fortunate to offer specialty-trained nurses, therapists, technicians, and aides, larger patient rooms for easier mobility, and an environment conducive to healing. This level of care translates into superior results for our patients.

As a surgeon and care-giver there is no greater compliment than a satisfied patient. Your interaction with us and feedback is important as we continue to shape The Spine Center. I look forward to your questions and comments!
