Dr. Colman's Care Philosophy

My specialty involves degenerative spine conditions, spine trauma, spine deformity, but also spine oncology. The most common reason that people come into a spine surgeon is for arthritis or degenerative spine conditions in their back or neck. Surgery, in my eyes, is a last resort. I really feel strongly that conservative treatments, such as physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, or even injections should be pursued to their fullest extent before we endeavor upon surgery. There's a lot of different types of spine tumors. Some of them are cancerous tumors that need a multimodal approach involving possibly chemotherapy, possibly radiation therapy, and maybe even surgery. But I think many patients are surprised when I tell them that their tumor may, in fact, not be cancerous and may be a benign tumor that can be observed or treated in a more minimally invasive way.

Very happy to have Dr. Colman and his team as my spine doctor! I was expecting to have surgery on my neck, but after Dr. Colman review all of my symptoms, MRI'S he said medical care can be complicated, and I do not need surgery! I have neck pain but the pain is not coming from my neck, coming from my bad shoulder, and there is no surgical indication as it relates to my left shoulder. Dr. Colman sending me to massage therapy and it helps a lot! Thank you so much Dr. Colman. Lawrence
