Dr. Duncan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Duncan "As a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic back, neck, and spine surgeon, I specialize in using an honest and straightforward approach to treating my patients. I am dedicated to using the most advanced procedures and treatments for my patients, including minimally invasive procedures to keep them in motion. I am happiest when I am able to use my skills to relieve a patient's pain and enjoy working with my patients to obtain the best patient outcomes. I only recommend surgical treatment to my patients when all nonsurgical treatment options have been exhausted. When surgery is necessary, I attempt to use the least invasive methods to accelerate recovery time. When I am not seeing patients, I enjoy hiking, boating, and sports."
