Dr. Verma's Patient Philosophy
Dr. Verma involves patients and family members during clinic visits and prides himself on explaining the disease process, reviewing imaging with his patients, and providing all the resources needed to help his patients make an informed decision.
Non-operative treatment is the mainstay of treatment and most spine problems are successfully managed without surgery. When surgery is considered, Dr. Verma likes to discuss the potential surgical options and develop a personalized surgical treatment plan together with his patients. Dr. Verma is especially enthusiastic when patients are actively engaged in their care.
