I finished my Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) residence training at Albany Medical Center in 2011.  Subsequently, I had a fellowship training in interventional spinal and electrodiagnostic medicine (EMG) at the University of Massachusetts in 2012. I am board certified in both PM&R and EMG.

Additionally, I earned my PhD degree in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Science at the University of Pittsburgh. I had postdoctoral training in neuroscience research at the University of Michigan. Throughout the career in research, I have published many high quality papers in prestigious journals.

Since graduation from spine fellowship, I have worked in the Illinois Neurosurgical Institute spine center for 8 years. I helped neurosurgeons managing challenging non-surgical spine conditions. This is to prevent as many spinal surgeries as possible–avoiding any unnecessary surgical complications. I was appointed in both the Departments of PM&R and Neurology to conduct electrodiagnostic studies (EMG) and manage complicated neurological conditions. I was also appointed as a clinical assistant professor in the department of neurosurgery at University of Illinois at Chicago.

My clinical interest is to provide the patient-centered, evidence-based, and most appropriate solution to patients who suffer from all types of spine and musculoskeletal related injuries or pain, various neurological conditions. My goal is to help you return to a normal life as quickly as possible so you can have a better quality of life. I treat each of my patients as I treat my family members with the utmost care.

In my free time, I love playing golf, hiking and running. I also like to travel around the world to see different cultures, tasting delicious food, and exploring the diverse nature of our world.
