Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Vemuri "While Dr. Vemuri is a spine surgeon, he is committed to exhausting all non-surgical treatment options before considering surgical intervention. His primary objective is to help patients get back to enjoying their lives through restoring function from painful spinal conditions. His interest in minimally invasive surgeries is due in large part to increased chances for reduced blood loss, less tissue damage, and a faster recovery time for his patients."

Dr. Vermuri is patient and attentive. he lives up to his commitment that surgical solutions are a last option, not a first consideration. He provided a superb recommendation to Julie Snowden and Advance Physical Therapy and the results are quite promising. I recommend him highly.

I appreciate being treated like an individual rather than a disease. The art and science of medicine are both important to patient recovery and optimal health. Having an exceptional surgeon who also listens to your needs is paramount to this dynamic.
