Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mathur "As a board certified spinal surgeon, my approach to spinal problems is unique. My practice focuses on the total care of the spine patient. Most people with back and neck pain do not need surgery. We have developed a comprehensive spine center that has five PMNR doctors who specialize in spinal injections. We have our own spine dedicated physical therapy. If surgery is needed, I utilize the latest methods of minimally invasive spine surgery. Most of my surgeries are outpatient procedures."

Dr. Mathur and his office is awesome. I would refer Dr. Mathur to anyone. I was skeptical of back surgery due to things I have heard. I recently had back surgery with Dr. Mathur and I'm doing wonderful!
