Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pearson "Minimally invasive treatment of spinal and cranial pathology is a large part of my practice. This means causing the least amount of tissue disruption possible while still performing maximally effective surgery. I use a multidisciplinary approach and try to push patients through a full spectrum of non-operative treatments before committing to the risk and tissue disturbances associated with surgical intervention. A minimally invasive approach to neurosurgery leads to better results for patients by avoiding surgery until it is necessary, smaller incisions, faster recovery, fewer complications, and reducing long term pain"

He fat shamed me too when my back was broken and J had a bone embedded in my spinal cord. He said he couldn't help me but wanted to do an MRI anyway.
