Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sanfilippo Jr "I take great pride in matching patients with the proper treatment to reduce pain, restore function, and return patients to their pre-injury lifestyle. This may include non-operative modalities, such as physical therapy, or operative procedures. If surgery is necessary, I specialize in both minimally invasive and open procedures involving the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, treating many conditions including failed prior surgery, degenerative conditions, trauma, deformity, and tumors."
