Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levesque "I am fundamentally committed to practicing medicine and neurosurgery with the sole focus on what is best for the patient.

When the restoration of optimal state of health is our only concern, we know optimal outcomes are achieved and we have done our job."

I have suffered for years with low back pain and pain in both legs. After meeting with several surgeons I chose Dr Levesque. I had my surgery in May 2015. The surgery was a complete success and I am pain-free in my back and legs. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Levesque to anybody.
