Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Long III "Dr. Long's philosophy on patient care centers on the doctor-patient relationship.  Despite rigorous hours and focus on surgery, he understands the gravity of patient autonomy, and the need to tailor a treatment plan that works for his patients.  Commonly, surgery is never the first option without first exploring all of the non-surgical treatments available.  When surgery is indicated, an emphasis on minimizing the surgical footprint is made, thus Dr. Long will perform robotic and minimally invasive spinal surgery when possible.  His expertise in the field of spinal surgery has led him to participation, committee, and leadership positions within national and international spinal conferences and surgical associations"
