Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nida "I place the highest priority on improving patient quality of life and function beginning with a thorough evaluation. Every conservative, non-surgical method possible is the first course of treatment. If surgery is needed, microscopic and minimally invasive surgical procedures are used for quicker recovery."
