Our Atlanta spine doctors at AICA Orthopedics are among the elite group of doctors who perform a wide variety of minimally invasive as well as traditional surgical methods for the back, neck, and spine. Our surgeons, however, believe in practicing all non-surgical avenues before exploring surgical practices to help reduce pain and restore mobility.
Only when all options have been exhausted, surgery will be discussed, and even then the least invasive method or technique will be performed first. Our patient’s needs and safety are our first concern, and the most effective and safest way of surgery will always be the course chosen as the desired outcome is still to improve function and mobility.
Our Spine Treatment Philosophy
Our Atlanta spine doctors work with a multidisciplinary team in which everyone shares thoughts and ideas about each patient and their care plan to ensure they receive the most optimal level of care available to them. By having a multitude of viewpoints, the patient has the best chance for the best possible outcome.
By making the patient the focal point and including them in the decision-making process, the patient and team of doctors collaboratively agree on the best course of action. Each patient will receive a consultation from discussing all symptoms and other concerns as our dedicated and compassionate team listens and responds with guidance. By including our patients in every step, we feel they are more empowered as they should be, and because of this, our patients become more responsive to their overall health.
