Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Jamaris "The vast majority of my patients end up markedly improved without needing to succumb to surgery. And, if surgery is needed, I would certainly opt for the least invasive, rather than accept the modern trend of more involved, which only increases risk without raising the rate of successful outcomes."
