This content was provided by Dr. An What I do mostly at Rush is really taking care of patients with various spinal problems. Just because patients come to see me in my office, that doesn't mean that all discussion is restrict to surgery. We have various options: non-surgical, surgical. So that's how we make the patients at ease by discussing different options. My philosophy of patient care is, first of all, really treat each and every patient with respect. And also treat all patients like your own family members. This means listening to their medical history very carefully and coming out with treatment recommendations that have best possible outcomes.
