“My patient philosophy is to give everyone a full shot at conservative treatment before considering spine surgery in particular. I think the least invasive options for the patients are usually the best in terms of reducing their pain and getting them back to normal function, whether that be surgical or conservative treatment. The time that I’m willing to spend with patients sets me apart, and, to a great extent, I feel as though the care I provide is very patient-centered. I find that the more I educate my patients, the better they do.” – Dr. Indresano
