Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sinha "Having had family with neck and back issues, I know that finding an answer can be almost as frustrating as dealing with the pain itself. As a fellowship trained spine surgeon I can help you to understand the problem and find a solution, through non-surgical methods or the latest operations available. My ultimate goal is to help you get back to living your life."
