Surgery is the last resort and in most cases a conservative approach is sufficient and appropriate. In the rare cases that surgery is necessary I work closely with a team of surgeons skilled in spine ,shoulder ,knee, and ankle procedures.
Fir 25 years I have had the privilege of treating patients in North Jersey and New York. I stress a holistic and non surgical approach be it neck,back, knee,or shoulder pain. In our practice we tailor a rehabilitation program to the individual and encourage follow up with home exercise programs to maintain the progress made. We try to minimize unnecessary testing. I have a particular interest in ergonomics as our technology: smartphone, tablets and laptops are increasing the incidence of neck and low back pain. There are ways to minimize these harmful postural effects and that is something which we stress in most of our visits.
