Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Stephens II "My patient care philosophy is to treat each patient as if he or she were a family member, and to use the full extent of my clinical training and experience to tailor a treatment program to each patient's unique clinical situation. I believe in conservative, compassionate care that utilizes surgery as a last resort. When appropriately indicated, I also offer my patients minimally invasive and motion-preserving surgical techniques for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine."
