OVERVIEW

\"chronic back pain, loss of flexibility and mobility- this is the high price my patients pay everyday. For many of them, spine surgery comes at the end of many years of treatments and medicine. But there is good news here- new surgical treatments can have dramatic results. It's a great thing to be able to help restore function and reduce pain.\
