Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brebach "I treat a variety of spine ailments including herniated and protruding discs, slipped discs (spondylolisthesis), arthritis (spondylosis and stenosis), and scoliosis. The great majority of my patients successfully respond to conservative therapies (ranging from physical therapy, activity modification, and anti-inflammatories to epidural steroid injections). If these do not succeed, a variety of minimally invasive procedures may be recommended to directly address the problem. I strongly believe in taking the time to get to know my patients prior to making any surgical recommendations. When surgery is neccessary, my success rate is extremely favorable, upwards of 80-95% in even the most difficult of cases. The percentage of favorable outcomes is even higher in more straight forward cases such as lumbar and cervical herniated discs."

Always courteous and upbeat. Dr. Brebach is great at explaining his diagnosis so you can understand exactly what is going on. He makes you feel like he is genuinely concerned with your well being and is extremely knowledgeable in his field. Would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic care.

Wry pleased with Dr Brebach. I recently had a neck surgery for herniated discs at 2 levels. I was really worried about the pain and was not sure that surgery was the answer. Dr brebach took me through my options and showed me my problems on the MRI and the X-rays. I decided to have surgery and am...more

I found him to be very arrogant. He did not even look at my MRI. I went to a Neurosurgeon and he said I needed help immediately. I got a second opinion from another Neurosurgeon and he agreed. I find it scarey that he missed the obvious.
