Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Malik "My goal as a neurosurgeon is to provide the most effective care with the least amount of interruption to the patient's life. The ideal option is always to treat the patient without surgery. Conservative therapy, including physical therapy, medication, and injections, if required, are always prescribed first and foremost. If absolutely necessary to the patient's health, I will recommend minimally-invasive surgical procedures. My key objective is to improve my patients' well-being."
