Dr. Westerlund's Care Philosophy
As a fellowship-trained reconstructive spine surgeon, I appreciate that every patient is unique and that every neck and back problem requires a special, thoughtful solution. Many of the patients I see do not require surgery, and these patients are evaluated then referred for non-surgical care as a first priority. For those patients that do require a surgical solution, I believe in using the least invasive operative solution possible to help patients heal quickly and achieve their very best.
