Care Philosophy

I came to Duke for the opportunity to see something really substantial grow our spine program. A patient should want to come here because we offer what few places in the country can offer -- the breadth of what we can deal with and how we can deal with it. The expertise we have is unsurpassed in this region if not in the country. I was lucky enough to start with the minimally invasive surgery movement about 15 years ago. We have moved from the very simple operations to the most complex. At this point there is almost no operation that cant be done using minimally invasive techniques. Even with complicated significant surgeries we can show how much we can change peoples lives and do it better than in the standard open surgery approach. At the same time very simple operations can become even simpler when done using minimally invasive techniques.

in Rocky Mount, NC |
Had spinal fusion surgery done by Dr. Isaacs in April 2017, and feel as though I have been given my life back. I am 4 months out from very complex surgery, and am pain free. Can't say enough about how impressed I am with Dr. Isaac's surgical skills.

Would not hesitate to recommend Dr Isaac. I am pain free thanks to his minimally invasive surgery. Excellent doctor
in High Point, NC |
A great surgeon with exceptional skills but their administration department is the worst ever. Almost impossible to get a return phone or e mail in a timely manner. Time after time over long periods the same thing. What a shame! For administration I would give them 1 STAR
