I joined University of Iowa because of the remarkable opportunity to care for patients and contribute to the field of orthopedic spine surgery through research and education. I strive to care for each one of my patients as a whole, incorporating both surgical care and appreciation for each patient's personal attributes to better treat their spine-related diseases.
