Philosophy of Medicine

"I was fortunate to be exposed to Neurosurgeryat an early age by Dr. Daniel Schmelka inGrand Forks as well as have a talented mentor in Dr. Charles Branch, Jr., train me at Wake Forest University. I believe the overall success of any spine surgery depends on doing the right surgery, on the right patient, for the right reason, and at the right time."
