Welcome to Colorado Spine Partners. I would like your experience with our practice to be a satisfying one. Please let me take this opportunity to introduce you to my team. I have 2 Physician Assistants who specialize in the disorders of the adult spine and surgical treatments of those disorders. They work with me, both in clinic and in surgery. If you are a new patient you will most likely meet one of them first. I also have 2 medical assistants that coordinate the care of my patients, coordinate surgeries and communication with referring physicians, hospitals and imaging centers.
