Neck and Back

Back pain, whether it stems from muscle soreness, herniated discs, ligament sprains, degenerative conditions, fractures or other conditions of the spine, can be particularly debilitating. Dr. Scott McGovern, a fellowship trained spine surgeon, is the primary physician who treats neck and back injuries/conditions. He treats the majority of patients without the use of surgery, but when surgery is indicated as the best treatment option, he relies on innovative, minimally invasive and motion-preserving surgeries to reduce recovery time and decrease discomfort.
