Dr. Kouka's Care Philosophy

Being a Neuromusculoskeletal Specialist and a former Neurosurgeon, who performed over 3,000 spinal surgeries and procedures, including Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgeries, I can proudly promise that I'll use every medical knowledge that I learned during my 40 years of education and practice and I'll do everything in my power to help my patients to avoid spinal surgeries.
