As a surgeon, my role is to help you overcome your injury or ailment so that you can regain control of your life. The best way to assist you is to listen to you so that I can understand your goals and offer you treatments that best match those goals.
My expertise and training is in spine surgery and orthopedic fracture care. I have over 12 years of practice experience, having completed thousands of spine procedures.
I am a strong advocate of using minimally-invasive surgical technology to reduce your recovery time and maximize your surgical outcomes. Greater than 90 percent of my back procedures are performed with less than one-inch incisions.
Born and raised in the tri-state area, I am excited to bring my wife and children here so that we can be closer to our family.
Originally from the west coast, I moved to the Midwest to earn my Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine from Kent State University in Cleveland, OH and completed my residency training at St. Mary’s Medical Center here in Evansville. My practice focuses on ankle and foot care, reconstructive surgery, flatfoot reconstruction, ankle arthritis, and ankle stabilization.
My philosophy is to focus on individual patients by listening to their concerns and educating them on their conditions as well as their treatment options. I believe in a conservative approach to treatment whenever possible and encourage patient involvement to determine the best plan of care. I want to help my patients return to the lifestyle and activities they enjoy.
