Dr. Rovner's Care Philosophy

Robert Rovner, M.D. specializes in the treatment of spinal conditions in pediatric, adult and elderly patients with an emphasis on the use of minimally invasive techniques. He treats pediatric deformities such as scoliosis, traumatic injuries such as disc herniations and fractures, and degenerative conditions such as spinal stenosis and disc degeneration. Dr. Rovner has recently built a new office and created a unique comfortable office to offer his patients the most focused, private and calming environment possible. He has numerous spine models and computers in each exam room to visually educate each patient about their condition(s) affecting their spine. His staff engages personally with patients and will make sure they have a cell phone number to easily correspond for important issues. Dr. Rovner's approach is conservative with surgery being the option after all other treatments have been discussed and/ or tried. He offers the best advancements in spine surgery for patients with degenerative disease of the spine, scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, herniated discs, and other conditions. He has actually developed and patented procedures and devices to help give patients the best treatment possible. His ability to correct scoliosis with his novel correction approach is the first in the country and has been featured on the news. 2012-2013 CASTLE CONNOLLY'S TOP DOCTORS AWARD—awarded by a physician led research team that reviews and screens the credentials of tens of thousands of physicians who are nominated by their peers annually via a nationwide online process and are regionally or nationally among the very best in their medical specialites. 2008 PATIENTS' CHOICE AWARD 2008-2013 COMPASSIONATE DOCTOR AWARD-5 YEAR HONOREE (2013)

in Brentwood,CA 94513 |
I would highly recommend Dr.Robert Rovner for anyone who has been suffering lower back pain and has tried everything possible to manage the incidious pain to avoid surgery.He carefully evaluated and diagnosed the problem and said he could help me out surgically. I had the recommended surgeries just one month ago. I was in the hospital 3 days. The only thing I have discomfort with are the healing incisions. I no longer have Lower back and paralyzing left leg pain. Recovery is going well.

Success!! That's what I have to say about Dt. Rovner. I am 8 months post op and I can now do activities I haven't done in 10 years. After seeng 4 other surgeons 10 years ago in the beginning I decided to follow his direction and process prior to back surgery. Thank goodness I did because with my surgery completed now, only having 2 plastic disks w/6 screws holding them in place, the success I have been experiencing with my healing has been fanstastic!!
