Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Prasad "Having completed a fellowship in both Neurosurgical and Orthopedic Spine Surgery I bring to my patients a full breadth of spine expertise. I exercise a very conservative philosophy, believing that surgical intervention is really a last resort. Educating neurosurgical residents and fellows keeps me at the forefront of modern spine surgery and I bring this enthusiasm for teaching to my patients, believing that it is essential for them to understand their spine condition and management options."
