Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

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.Read more

Really took time to sit down and explain the condition and options.
in Delray Beach, FL |
I received excellent and precise care with Dr Wang and his team. I was in horrible pain before surgery. I am much improved functionally and have no pain I never expected to feel this good again. It is worth the wait to get an appointment. mY only suggestion is to get an 8 am appointment .
