Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mataragas "As the majority of spinal conditions respond to conservative management, emphasis is given to maximizing conservative treatment options. When surgical intervention is indicated, minimally invasive surgical techniques are utilized to minimize postoperative morbidity and facilitate a rapid recovery and return to normal living."
