Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sinicropi "Dr. Sinicropi has one of the largest and most successful practices in Minnesota because of his reputation of giving the patient REAL ANSWERS to even the most diagnostically challenging patients.  Patients who are told that they need spinal surgery often travel to see Dr. Sinicropi to see if there is another potentially less invasive option for them.    Patients who have been told "there is nothing we can do" having sometimes endured years of treatments and incorrect diagnosis, are often relieved to hear that there is a solution to their condition. "

Dr. Sinicropi was exceptional to work with and is one of the best people you can find in the Upper Midwest for spine, neck and back issues. He had me back on my feet in minimal time following disc replacement surgery and went to bat for me with the insurance company.
