Specialty: Disorders and Surgery of the Spine
I’ve been on the other side of that operating table…
If you’re experiencing neck or back pain, I can relate in a way few physicians can. I’ve had three back surgeries of my own, starting with a football injury at 16 and ending with my most recent back injury two years ago. While I am doing great today, I can relate to what you’re experiencing.
After early surgeries I became concerned with some of the results that created additional problems for me later. Dealing with these outcomes really changed my perspective. Thanks to my medical training, I understood the root causes.
I was determined to learn from my experiences, so I could devise better treatments. I knew there had to be ways to achieve safe, healthy, long-lasting and sustainable relief, without accepting the lost of mobility or collateral damage often seen as inevitable consequences of traditional surgeries.
I studied years of outcomes from traditional procedures and surgeries, analyzing them repeatedly and in great depth to gain the best-possible understanding…much the way any successful football coach obsessively replays and dissects his team’s performance post-game. Why did a negative outcome occur? What could have prevented it? How could a procedure have been done less invasively or more creatively to avoid that outcome?
Years of meticulous medical observation and teaching lab research have yielded the non-traditional methods our team uses today to effectively solve a patient’s problem less invasively, with less loss of mobility and fewer negative outcomes.
Whether it’s a special scalpel that can do the job with less stress on surrounding tissue….or a milder procedure that fixes the same problem without impacting other areas, we’ve honed non-traditional methods that have helped our patients return to a functional, pain-free life, with more mobility and far fewer negative outcomes.
Please call us with any questions you have about our methods, approach, treatment philosophy, medical experience, education, in-house teaching facility or to schedule your private consultation.
