About Us

Team of Experts

Our team of orthopedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, physiatrists, and rehabilitation specialists collaborate – all in one office – to provide you with the best spine care for both routine and the most complex spine conditions. When you come to UConn, instead of meeting one specialist focused on their practice, you will meet a team of experts focused on working together to identify the source of your neck or back symptoms. We offer a range of diagnostic procedures to help identify your condition. Available procedures include X-ray, MRI, CT scan, diagnostic injection procedures, ultrasound, EMG, and nerve conduction studies. We will use the results to create a custom treatment plan to address the cause of your symptoms. We share ideas for treatment in regular conferences and often work together in surgery to make the case safer and faster.

Committed to Advancing Care

Our spine specialists are members of national and international organizations dedicated to improving spine care and treatment outcomes. As a result, our team stays up-to-date on the latest techniques and advances in the treatment of spinal disorders.

Advanced Technologies

For patients undergoing spinal procedures, the margin for error is very small as surgeons work within millimeters of essential structures such as nerves, major blood vessels, and the spinal cord. Pinpoint precision during surgery is critical. Surgeons at UConn Health use a wide variety of technology to keep the surgery safe, precise, and accurate. UConn Health was the first in New England to offer robot-assisted surgery. We continue to adopt and employ the latest approaches and technology to make our surgeries safer and deliver better outcomes for our patients.

Safe and Effective Results

Our surgeons are motivated to improve constantly, so they pay close attention to outcomes and always strive to do better. UConn Health has been designated a "Blue Distinction Center+ for Spine Surgery." This distinction recognizes UConn Health's ability to deliver safe, efficient, and cost-effective spine surgery care.
