About Our Practice

Orthopedic Spine Surgery
Non-operative spine care
For any of us, facing any surgical procedure, general anesthesia, short or long hospital stays, and post-operative pain are frightening to think about or undergo. Luckily, better imaging techniques, diagnostic testing and improved, focused therapy, which includes comprehensive rehabilitation programs, make it possible to relieve many orthopedic spine and neurological problems without surgery. I emphasize patient centered care and strive to reduce medication usage and maximize rehabilitative approaches—including non-surgical approaches—to spine problems.
Cervical and lumbar spine surgery
Neck pain, backache, pinched nerves and sciatica (stenosis) can all take their toll on our everyday lives. Most get better without surgery. Some will not. Luckily, many new procedures are being developed to help alleviate pain and unnecessary suffering from spinal disease. Spinal surgery is evolving in its ability to meet the demands of a more active, older population as well as younger patients, but it is most often a last resort and has significant risks. Minimally invasive surgery, open spinal decompression and sometimes even spinal fusions or other implants can all play varying roles in helping achieve a better quality life.
