Too often when patients go to a surgeon, surgery is scheduled when other options are better. Dr. Theofilos works diligently with you to find the best treatment plan for your spine and neck related problems. The first step is to get your diagnosis. That involves talking to and listening to the patient. This process of listening to the patient (taking the medical history) is the most important part of your time with Dr. Theofilos.
Once you get your diagnosis, Dr. Theofilos will work to find options that can ease your pain and other symptoms without surgery. Once it is clear there is no danger requiring urgent surgery many options are available to help your symptoms. The options should be focused on the diagnosis and also on a long term plan to keep your health and avoid surgery if possible.
