Learn about Dr. Truumees

Care Philosophy

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.
