This content was provided by Dr. Farley "Our goal at Rock Creek Neurosurgery is to appropriately diagnose your condition and guide you to the most beneficial comprehensive treatment. We take a conservative approach and recognize that surgery may not be indicated for every patient. We aim to achieve the best surgical outcomes in every case.

Our goal is to reduce or abolish your pain, get you back to work, return you to a state of confidence and independence and improve the quality of your life. For spinal conditions, we will direct your care towards conservative treatment options like physical therapy, injections and medications, or discuss surgical options that would be appropriate and beneficial for your condition."
