Dr. Truumees' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Truumees "At Seton Spine & Scoliosis in central Texas, Dr. Truumees specializes in cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine disorders. We focus only on spine care in order to provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date care available."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Truumees "I became a doctor because it mixed my passion for helping people with my need to fix things. I loved science, but I knew I wanted more of a hands-on role than full time research could provide. I chose spine because it involves all ages and types  of people with all sorts of problems, from arthritis to fractures. Also, there are still so many unanswered questions about the spine and limits to what we can do. I hope that I can help both my individual patients and the spine community at large."
