Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zikel "Dr. Zikel is a board certified neurosurgeon. He graduated magna cum laude from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and received his medical degree from Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. He underwent neurosurgical training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and has been in practice since 2000. Dr. Zikel has received extensive training in all aspects of neurosurgery, including brain, spine, and peripheral nerves. He has a particular interest, however, in spinal pathology. Although he has received comprehensive training in advanced spine surgery, including spinal reconstruction and minimally invasive operations, Dr. Zikel believes in a conservative approach. Many patients will improve without surgery, and all patients' wishes are taken into consideration before any treatment is undertaken."
