Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Woodall Jr "My mission is to improve the function and quality of life of patients suffering from spinal disorders by providing expertise in treatment of all spinal conditions including degenerative problems, disk disease, stenosis, trauma, tumors, scoliosis and instability.

The Spine provides the framework for all body systems. Spine problems can cause pain in the neck and back, as well as dysfunction in the arms and legs due to nerve compression. I understand and treat the various complex problems associated with the neck and back and I am dedicated to provide each patient a precise diagnosis and a personalized treatment plan. Many spinal problems will improve with the appropriate exercise program and lifestyle modifications.

When surgery is necessary I offer the most advanced treatment options, ranging from microscopic minimally-invasive surgery to complex spinal reconstruction.I am dedicated to providing the highest level of care for your neck or back problems."
