He has expertise in scoliosis, complex spinal disorders, and minimally invasive surgery. The growth of minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) procedures has transformed spine surgery over the years. MISS when compared to open surgery can be a safe, quick procedure with short downtime. The use of minimally invasive techniques enables surgeons to perform surgery among the elderly and patients who have been considered unfit for open procedures, showing great clinical and radiographic outcomes.
