Philosophy Of Care
Dr. Song practices general neurosurgery but focuses mainly on treating disorders of the spine. Such disorders include herniated discs, radiculopathy, myelopathy, spondylolisthesis, stenosis and spinal fractures. He takes time to listen to his patient's problems and will try to devise a comprehensive team-based approach to help his patients recover and work with them to keep them healthy.
When surgery is required, Dr. Song uses state of the art minimally invasive techniques to minimize the length of surgery and to speed recovery - in many cases these surgeries can be performed in an outpatient setting.
