Philosophy of Care "I approach every patient as an individual, each requiring a unique and customized approach in their evaluation and treatment plan. I understand spinal disorders are complex, requiring thoughtful discussions to provide information to patients on all treatment options. Surgery is offered to carefully selected patients if other non-operating treatments fail. When surgery is offered, the least invasive approach is utilized. This philosophy leads to the best possible outcomes for our patients."
