Biography

| Practicing Locations: Plano & McKinney

| Personal Quote:

“Over a decade into practice now, I’ve really seen the spectrum of how great an impact I can make in the life of a patient dealing with neck or back pain.  I’ve gained a deeper appreciation of just how far-reaching the effects of painful spinal conditions can be in a patient’s life – affecting every aspect in a unique and personal way.  To that end, I want my patients to know that I will make every effort to understand exactly how their neck or back pain affects them as an individual and will personalize their treatment plan accordingly.  There are often many ways in which we can address a surgical problem and I don’t believe in a “one size fits all” model.  I tell patients routinely that I will do the least invasive procedure to best address their condition and will pursue motion-preservation whenever possible over fusion.”
