Dr. Weidenbaum's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Weidenbaum "I am dedicated to delivering the best-possible surgical care for acute and chronic spinal conditions. Many of these conditions are due to deformities (scoliosis, kyphosis), pinched nerves, herniated discs, fractures, tumors, and degenerative conditions, such as arthritis and spinal stenosis. By performing a wide array of surgical procedures, ranging from microsurgical decompressions to complex spinal reconstructions, I am able to tailor each person's individual care to address their specific spinal disorder."
