You Deserve Expert Care from a Top Long Island Back Surgeon

Does lower back pain interrupt your day? Getting through a shift on your feet, bending down or lifting at work, sitting at a desk for hours…all of these seemingly simple tasks can be extremely challenging when you have chronic lower back pain. The fact that it’s common and a leading cause of lost work days, doesn’t make it any less debilitating to live with. But you might be wondering, “Who should I consult for back pain?” The answer is to start with a spine specialist.

At Spine Medicine & Surgery of Long Island, Dr. Daniel Choi and his team offer leading-edge spine care for patients with a range of lumbar spine conditions. While Dr. Choi is a Harvard-trained, board-certified orthopaedic spine surgeon, he’s approachable and caring (just check out his YouTube channel). At his boutique practice, he listens to your concerns and needs with an open mind. Dr. Choi takes a conservative approach and thanks to advances in the field, he helps the majority of patients achieve relief without surgery.

In cases where lower back surgery is necessary, Dr. Choi specializes in state-of-the-art, minimally invasive spine surgery. With tools like 3D treatment planning, surgical instruments that transmit their exact location, an ultrasonic scalpel that bypasses soft tissues and CT-guided navigation, we’re able to minimize the risks and preserve more of your mobility. Let’s help you reclaim the life and career you remember.
