      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Rodriguez's Care Philosophy

      I specialize in the treatment of spinal conditions. I feel that every effort should be made to avoid surgery for neck and back problems. However, when conservative measures fail, I can provide surgical options that limit invasiveness and maximize motion. Every decision we make for your condition is shared between the doctor and the patient.
