Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Oni "I practiced as a board certified orthopedic surgeon for 8 years before returning as a clinical research fellow in spinal surgery under the tutelage of Edward H. Simmons, MD, one of the world's leading spine surgeons of his day. My training and experienced fine tuned my practice to make the best surgical and non-surgical decisions in the care of my patients' neck and back pain conditions. These philosophies also extend to knee and hip joint replacements, shoulder repair and knee arthroscopy."
