Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Madsen "Most patients with a spinal pain do not require surgery. However, for those who are surgical candidates it is important to work with a surgeon who will help you pick the least invasive and most motion sparing option in order to maximize your function. For those patients who pursue surgery, Dr. Madsen utilizes the most advanced technology including minimally invasive surgery, disc replacement, computer assisted navigation and robotic assisted surgery."
