Spine Specialists have a deep understanding of spinal disorders including spinal stenosis, herniated discs, scoliosis, and other spine-related traumatic conditions. Moreover, they use a range of diagnostic tools such as imaging studies to evaluate and identify the root cause of spinal issues. They go for treatment options including surgical as well as non-surgical interventions.
