Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rhee "Dr. Rhee is one of an elite group of physicians that utilizes the Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLIF) approach to spine surgery. This technique benefits the patient due to:

  • Smaller incisions result in less blood loss and a shorter recovery time;
  • The muscle is spread instead of retracted, resulting in less discomfort; and,
  • In most cases, the hospital stay can be reduced by half.

I basically told her there was "nothing I can do for you....I'm a surgeon I fix things with my hands and you are not a candidate for surgery" and spent the rest of the appointment trying to inch his way out of the...more
