I treat my patients as my family. I do not perform spine surgery to change their backs, but to improve patients' lifestyles and quality of life.
I like to travel the world, training surgeons at highly respected medical centers as well as surgeons at local hospitals in developing world countries. I am a member of Health Volunteers Overseas, and am fluent in Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian.
