I am a neurosurgeon subspecialized in spine surgery. After a long training in neurosurgery further complimented by fellowship training in spine surgery in world-known university brands, I started my practice in the University of Kentucky as a complex spine surgeon.

My continued training has made me proficient in different surgical methods and techniques, including open, mini-open, microscopic and minimally invasive surgery (MIS) procedures. I see different techniques as complimentary tools in taking care of patients and believe that an unbiased surgeon who is skilled in more than one technique can better serve his/her community.

Although I routinely take care of all aspects of spine disorders, my specific passion and interest is spine deformity and spine tumors. I believe that being able to stand erect and functional without pain is a unique feature of humankind, and as a complex and deformity spine surgeon, I feel privileged to have the surgical skillset for that.

My goal in my career is to give all my patients the highest quality and most updated treatment they deserve. This will only be possible through hard and honest work, fruitful companionship with colleagues and staff, as well as continued engagement in teaching, learning, and research. I see UK as an excellent workspace to obtain that goal.
