Patient Focused Spine Treatment
We know that each patient’s circumstance is unique and it is important to evaluate each individual with that in mind. Personalized attention, open communication, and collaboration is the cornerstone to achieving a customized spine treatment plan designed for optimal results for each patient.
Non-surgical spine procedures are always explored to relieve back pain and correct disorders, but when non-surgical options don’t prove effective, our comprehensive team of spine specialists will employ minimally invasive procedures, interventional pain management, fat transfer therapy, and customized treatment plans.
Minimally Invasive Spine Treatment
Minimally invasive spine surgery allows us to provide maximum pain relief with minimal recovery time, all while increasing mobility and accelerating our patients’ return to regular activities.
Dr. Joseph has successfully treated many patients who had previous unsuccessful surgical interventions elsewhere. He strives to help patients achieve an active lifestyle and relief from the pain they have endured.
Endoscopic Spine Surgery
Interventional Pain Management
I had my first lower back surgery on Nov. 2016, fused my S1 and L5. My spine had dislocated back in 1993 while lifting very heavy weights. Continued power lifting until back pain had worsened to the point it was unbearable. Unfortunately, about 6 months after surgery I was rear ended by a police officer and was in pain almost immediately following accident. My original surgeon had left the area for a position in Arizona and I made the most regrettable decision to have Tressor from Florida Orthopedic follow up with revision surgery. That “doctor” put me in the most intense pain imaginable up until Dr. Joseph rescued me. After seeing several Surgeons, all said there was nothing they could do, Dr. Joseph, after 3 surgeries has relieved all my lower back pain. I cannot say enough positive comments about him, even after the 3rd surgery and still experiencing intense pain mostly in my hips, ordered X rays and found my hips were past bone. Having 2nd hip surgery this Friday. Thank you, Dr.
I have been in continuous pain since 2018. My sleeping partners were two ice packs and one moist heating shoulder pad. I put my health off due to being a caregiver for my mother, that moved in with me in 2014. I promised her I would not ever put her in a home, and she passed overlooking our beautiful pond in the backyard of my house on January 30th. I am unsure if God just kept the pain under control due to working full time and being a full-time caregiver until I could get my care. However, I went to my Chiropractor, and he said it's now time to get an MRI, and he ordered it. Well, the MRI was five pages long. I knew by the look on his face it was not good news. He said until I saw a Neurosurgeon, he would not touch me other than Ultrasound treatments. I also had a home massage therapist every week. He recommended I go to Joseph Spine Institute.
I sustained an injury to back due to a slip and fall. I sought the opinion of another spine facility but they did not give me options that Dr. Nguyen did. Since being under his care, Dr. Nguyen has provided me with the ultimate medical care due to my spinal injury.
Dear Dr. Ron Chatterjee,Quality Of Life - RestoredI have suffered severe back and neck pain since 1986 resulting from a car accident. I have tried everything from chiropractors, acupuncture, surgery, and even ablation from another pain management doctor. As we say in my business not all windows and installations are created equal. A job done the correct way is worth its weight in gold.
Dr. Nguyen performed a Kyphoplasy on me. I had a bad fall and was in extreme pain from a compression fracture. Had been in three different hospital emergency rooms with no relief. St. Joseph’s hospital recommended Dr. Nguyen. It was an outpatient procedure and the pain was immediately relieved. This procedure and Dr. Nguyen comes highly recommended by me. Manner by him and his staff was always professional and welcoming.
