I have created this website to provide content for patients with a variety spinal problems. I believe there are too many unnecessary treatments offered in our current healthcare environment. I believe in naturalistic solutions to spinal problems (particularly core strengthening) when appropriate. If surgery is warranted, I look for ways to accomplish the task utilizing minimal access to the spine. I believe that education is an independent determinant of health. I hope that this site will allow me to serve as both as an educator of patients as well as a protector of patients against the abuses of overtreatment.


The North Jersey Brain and Spine group is dedicated to the delivery of expedient, compassionate, and technologically sophisticated care. Our goals are to offer the finest conservative and surgical care, and to help educate our patients and the community of physicians about the latest advances in the rapidly changing world of neurosciences.
