About Our Practice

My practice consists of all areas of the spine, including pediatric and adult scoliosis surgery, cervical spine, spinal stenosis, herniated disc, minimally invasive spine surgery, as well as reconstructive surgery for patients with spinal tumors and trauma.

I practice in a state-of-art spine center of an academic medical center, Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. The Rush Spine and Back Center provides comprehensive care for patients with spinal disorders, and physicians from different disciplines including orthopaedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, and physiatrists work collaboratively.
