My philosophy of care is not a viewpoint; It is a commitment.
The most important part of patient care lies in the relationship between a physician and patient and the joint effort in accomplishing a desired goal. My role is to provide the patient with all of the information about their diagnosis, including the options of treatment that are available in managing a particular condition. These options are both surgical and non-operative.
As a Columbia University trained surgeon with dual fellowship training in orthopaedic and neurosurgical spine surgery, my skills in the operating room are extremely sub-specialized, for both adults and children. Each day, I apply my experience, technical skills, and clinical acumen to every patient that steps into my office.
It has been my lifelong commitment to provide the highest level of care to as many patients as possible and to remain at the forefront on a path toward the advancement of the field of spine surgery.
As a Columbia University and Norton Leatherman trained surgeon with dual fellowship training in both orthopedic and neurosurgical spine surgery, my primary goal is to educate patients and provide them with a full understanding of their diagnosis, including the evidence-based non-operative and operative treatments for the management of their specific spinal condition. I believe that the relationship between a physician and patient is of utmost importance, and remains a critical aspect in the joint effort toward accomplishing the desired outcome.
