This content was provided by Dr. Zimmerman "Care is individualized to each patient.  Whenever possible, I recommend nonsurgical options first.  When surgery is an option, I discuss why it might help you, what is likely to happen without surgery and exactly what surgery and recovery would entail.  I never pressure patients into surgery and I do my best to give you the information you need to make whatever decision is right for you.  "
