This content was provided by Dr. Goldberg "People are somewhat fearful when they hear that they may need a spine operation. When you discuss what the options are, you sort of educate them on what the outcomes of the procedures you're recommending offer - what the success rates is, what risks are - so that they can make an informed decision. When I see patients back in an office, after X number of weeks after they've had a procedure and they're pleased with their outcome, that's what makes me come back - if you will - year after year to continue to practice spine surgery."
