This content was provided by Dr. Gottfried I specialize in the surgical management of all complex cervical thoracic lumbar or sacral spinal diseases by using minimally invasive as well as standard approaches for arthritis or degenerative disease deformity tumors and trauma. I have a special interest in the treatment of thoracolumbar deformities occipital-cervical problems and in helping patients with complex spinal issues from previously unsuccessful surgery or recurrent disease. I aim to improve surgical outcomes for my patients and care of all spine patients with active research evaluating clinical and radiological results after spine surgery with multiple prospective databases. I listen to my patients to understand their symptoms and experiences so I can provide them with the information and education they need to manage their disease. I make sure my patients understand their treatment options and what will work best for their individual condition. I treat all my patients with care and concern just as I would treat my family. I am available to address my patients' concerns before and after surgery.
