Nonsurgical Care of Back Pain

  • We take pride in treating most our patients with spine problems without surgery.
  • Our philosophy is to use all non surgical means in our power to get patients back on their feet. We believe that surgery is the last resort in select patients. We will advise surgery only all other options are exhausted and feel that surgery is likely to have significant benefits.
  • Most of our patients never require surgery.
  • We begin our evaluation with a thorough workup that includes history and physical examination. We will review any investigations if required. And once a diagnosis is made, the treatment will be discussed with you.
  • We will take all efforts to educate and counsel you regarding your problem. We encourage that you understand your diagnosis and participate in your care.
  • We will answer all your questions until you are satisfied.
  • Sometimes we will take help from our fellow doctors to help you get better. Our physiotherapy colleagues and pain management services (anesthesiology and radiology) work together with us as a team to deliver the best possible results.
