Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lee "My practice focus is on Interventional Physiatry which entails all nonoperative treatment of spine related pain. I recently joined Mount Sinai in 2013 after serving over 15 years as an attending physician and partner at the Spine Institute of Beth Israel Medical Center in NYC. Our general philosophy is to individualize care to each patient using a comprehensive, multidiscplinary team approach."
