Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Our resident Dr. Michael A. Thomas performs a range of neurosurgical procedures. Our neurosurgical specialist in Florida provides you with the best surgery. While many people may think that the term “neurosurgeon” is synonymous with “brain surgeon,” neurosurgeons do much more than that. Our resident neurosurgeon assists patients suffering from back and neck pain along with a variety of other illnesses by performing minimally invasive spine surgery. If you're looking for the neurological specialists in Altamonte Springs, Kissimmee, or Coral Springs, we are here to help.
