“I am dedicated to making sure patients feel comfortable with their visit to Nebraska Orthopaedic Center. Patients often come to the office in pain. The main goal will be to work on answering “what” their pain is from, and “what options” are available in treating that pain, both non-surgical and sometimes surgical.”

Mike has a diverse medical background including working as a pathologist’s assistant (autopsy, gross specimen-Las Vegas). From there he completed a Doctor of Chiropractic in Los Angeles at Southern California University of Health Sciences and practiced for 3 years. Ultimately, completed a master’s in physician assistant and has worked with NOC since.

Mikes family is most important to him. His wife, Lindsey and his 2 children run the family show. Outside of family and work mostly revolves around sports (golf, running, tennis).
