Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wingo "We take the time to really listen to our patients and explain all their treatment options. Our patients are aware they are receiving the benefits of my years of experience, as well as my knowledge of the newest innovations in spinal technology. We work closely with providers of physical therapy, chiropratic, exercise/fitness, massage and pain management. We recommend surgery only when all non-operative treatment has failed to resolve the problem. We advocate a post operative rehabilitation with graduation to full body fitness for every surgical patient."

Dr. Wingo has done surgery on my husband's back several times. He won't let any other doctor touch it. Dr. Wingo is professional and very personable. His work has been stellar.
