Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Slosar Jr "I always stress non-operative treatments first. We have a multi-disciplinary team of spine specialists to provide a complete, 1-stop destination for all spinal treatments. I spend a great deal of time with each individual patient to better understand how their lives have been disrupted by their injuries. I can then recommend the least invasive option to address their specific spine problem. I focus on the complete recovery of my patients. I want them to be active participants in life again, including sports and social activities. Please visit my website for more information: www.drslosar.com"
