Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Young "1. Neurosurgery should be a holistic practice, which more often than not involves non-surgical approaches. 2. Even when surgery is necessary, smaller operations are often more effective than large, invasive ones. 3. A neurosurgeon's most useful diagnostic skill is listening to patients. One of his/her major tasks is educating and counseling patients so they can participate in their own care. 4. Patient should generally obtain second opinions before agreeing to major surgery."

His evaluation of my back problems were completely different from that of the other doctor in his practice. I don't believe he totally read the reports/notes concerning my case. I will not be seeing him again.
