Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gordon "I believe in spinal surgery as the last resort in a comprehensive care plan. However, spinal surgery is vital to good patient outcome particularly in cases of progressive neurologic deficits, severe pain, failure of conservative care, and severely abnormal diagnostic studies. I have an excellent history of good documented long term results."
