Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grimm ""Helping people regain an active and pain-free lifestyle is of great importance to me. Please know that just because I am a spine surgeon, it does not mean that I always give a surgical recommendation. I always try to solve spinal problems with nonsurgical treatments first. Surgery is always the last resort.""
