Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hayes "Our goals are to provide spinal care with the least amount of risk to our patients. We are trained in both minimally invasive and major reconstructive spinal surgery. We obtained this unique training by completing two different fellowships in spinal surgery instead of the traditional single fellowship; one in minimally invasive spinal treatment and one in major reconstructive spinal treatment."
