Dr. Chapman is recognized for his expertise in minimally invasive treatment modalities for spinal stenosis and herniated discs. His practice was involved in the pivotal study on the MILD (Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression) procedure and is also at the forefront of pain management treatments such as endoscopic discectomy for painful herniated discs and endoscopic radiofrequency ablation for patients that have failed conventional radiofrequency. Dr. Chapman is considered a thought leader in spinal cord stimulation and an expert in stimulation (SCS) for the treatment of pelvic pain.
