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."

After seeing another Spine Spec (recommended by my GP) I did my research and found Dr. Mathur. He was VERY helpful and has an excellent staff. He is that rare doctor that is a skilled technician and can converse with the patient with respect and empathy.
