Spine Surgery

Dr. Wong is the Past Chairman of the NASS Patient Safety Committee and has been the course chairman for the CME courses for surgons on minimally invasive spine surgery for NASS and American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS).
Care Philosophy

Dr. Wong takes a conservative, minimally invasive approach to treatment. Non surgical interventions and injection procedures are considered an integral part of the conservative approach. In those patients who ultimately become candidates for surgery, Dr. Wong specializes in the minimally invasive/microsurgical procedures. The care team includes an office based medical assistant (MA) and a physician's assistant (PA) who is in the office with Dr. Wong but also assists in surgery. This team approach facilitates patient communication and allows us to provide the best possible patient care.
