Clinical Interest for Patients: My clinical interests include extensive clinical and surgical experience with cervical, thoracic and lumbar spinal disorders.
Care Philosophy: I currently serve as the Chief of Orthopaedic Spine Surgery at the University of Colorado. As an academic spine surgeon, it is my responsibility to stay involved in the latest spine care research findings, techniques, and technologies. I then look to my training and experience to judge which might be the best for each individual patient without increasing the risk of complications. I can thus choose the best technology for my patients based on their condition and expectation from surgical treatment. Surgery, however, is a last resort to be chosen only if conservative measures fail to provide sufficient relief.

I earned my Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and worked as an engineer before earning both a Master's of Arts and a Doctor of Medicine degree at Washington University in St. Louis. My Orthopaedic Spine Surgery training took place at the University of California (San Francisco) and St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica with respected Orthopaedic surgeons including Drs. Michael Kropf, Hyun Bae, Rick Delamarter, Ed Dawson, Serena Hu, and David Bradford.
