Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wang "As a surgeon who often sees patients who have had previous spinal surgery, I choose to specialize in complex spinal disorders and their treatment. I understand that coming to see a doctor in the University setting is more time consuming and complicated, but patients travel from far away to get honest and definitive answers to their questions. Because the spectrum of procedures available is so diverse, coming to our practice allows the patient to have almost all options presented to them."

Dr. Wang performed my back surgery/fusion on July 2017 and he is my life savior! I cannot understand how someone could leave a negative review of a doctor who is brilliant, dedicated and caring. I can walk, dance, exercise and live a normal life thanks to him.

Recommend him... Never, ever. Went there with a positive attitude and hope, but left even more...Read More
