Born and raised in Southern Indiana, it is a blessing to be back home, providing care for the area that I call home. My goal is to improve quality of life and alleviate pain. I try to help my patients to be more active and give them hope.
My areas of specialty are nonsurgical musculoskeletal care and image guided injections. I completed Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation residency in Richmond, Virginia. After residency, I spent an additional year there in Pain Medicine fellowship. As an accredited fellowship, the most respected type of fellowship, I was able to obtain board certification in both PM&R and Pain Medicine. I am well qualified and proficient in joint injections as well complex spine injections. I also enjoy treating patients through alternative injections such as PRP.
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.
