Dr. Roberts believes that surgery should be as minimally disruptive as possible and that surgery is almost always a last resort. Having trained in a dual neurosurgical and orthopedic spine fellowship, Dr. Roberts is familiar with a broad range of minimally invasive and traditional spine surgical techniques. He assures his patients that he will do the least amount of surgery necessary to safely and effectively solve their problem. Dr. Roberts specializes in treating individuals of all ages with operative and non-operative spinal issues including, but not limited to, minimally invasive and traditional spine surgery, cervical spine conditions, athletic injuries to the spine, degenerative conditions of the lumbar spine, adult and pediatric spinal deformities, spine trauma and much more. Dr. Roberts is now accepting new patients.
Dr. Roberts is the BEST and that’s my personal opinion. He is very hands on, compassion and understanding. I highly recommend his services.Anna Thomas
