    Research interests

    My clinical interest lies in the comparative effectivness of treatments of degenerative conditions of the spine and spinal deformity. In addition, I have an interest in surgical site infection prevention.

    Areas of Clinical Interest

    The evaluation and treatment of degenerative spine conditions of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. Adult spine conditions including deformity/scoliosis/kyphosis, trauma, tumors and infections as well as patients with previous failed spine surgery requiring revision. Treatment of the spine on non-operative and operative modalities including minimally invasive spine surgery, outpatient spine surgery and complex spine reconstructions. Spinal fractures, spine deformities, spine disorders, spine degeneration, spinal tumors, spinal stenosis, disc herniation, kyphoplasty, spondylolisthesis.
