Dr. Spence's Care Philosophy

Philosophy & Mission Neurosurgical problems are frequently painful and can cause movement to be difficult or impossible. Often, neurological signs and symptoms can be puzzling and frustrating to understand. We all know how we would like to be taken care of when tragedy strikes, and that drives the philosophy of our staff. In our office, you will notice the warm, courteous reception the moment you open the door. Relax in our comfortable waiting area and have a beverage. Our compassion combined with knowledge and experience is evident as we perform a thorough medical and neurosurgical evaluation then develop a unique set of treatment options using a multi-specialty team approach. We provide a variety of non-surgical and surgical treatment options. Through open dialogue we reflect on the risks, benefits and alternatives of each option and assist patients in making their decisions. We encourage questions and the collaboration of family and close friends as part of the process. Dr. Spence specializes in the evaluation and treatment of a variety of brain, spinal and peripheral nerve disorders. We use state-of-the-art technology in both diagnosis and treatment. Being fellowship-trained, Dr. Spence realizes the value of working in collaboration with a team including interventional neuro-radiologists, neurologists, vascular surgeons, neuro-otologists, endocrinologists, pain management specialists, critical care specialists, medical and radiation oncologists. By collaborating with these specialists, Dr. Spence and his colleagues are dedicated to providing the Oklahoma city area and surrounding communities with the highest quality of healthcare. We offer treatment strategies utilizing minimally invasive techniques both in the brain and in the spine. These techniques are usually performed through very small incisions and allow for a rapid, less painful recovery. We also excel in treating complex cranial disorders, reconstructing complex spinal deformities and doing revision spinal surgery.
