PHILOSOPHY OF CARE:
“No one should suffer from chronic neck and back problems, as most disorders can be treated conservatively. When conservative treatment options fail, with new innovative minimally invasive spine procedures, numerous options exist to alleviate pain and restore function and improve one’s quality of life. The key to success is to have an informed patient and a quality health care team.”
