While other doctors might choose to perform spine surgery after an initial patient consultation, we believe that surgery isn’t the first option because it’s the most invasive treatment and requires longer recovery times. We specialize in open surgery and minimally invasive surgery by using the latest technology, such as CyberKnife for spinal tumors.
