Our board-certified spine surgeon, Dr. Daniel Choi, has training and expertise in cutting-edge, minimally invasive spinal treatments. Our goal is to get you out of pain and back on your feet more quickly. We also take a patient-centered approach, treating you with respect and compassion and tailoring the experience to your unique needs.

A Focus on Patient Experience
While, of course, helping our patients live a pain-free, active lifestyle is our goal, we also prioritize patient experience and comfort. At our boutique practice, our systems and technology are optimized to make your visits convenient and efficient.
We take the time to get to know you as an individual and truly understand your unique situation and needs. Dr. Choi connects deeply with his patients and listens with an open mind. He always ensures you understand your diagnosis and treatment options and that you feel confident about your care.
Personalized, High-Tech Treatments
Dr. Choi is known for his minimally invasive approach and is a leader in state-of-the-art procedures, including robotic spine surgery, artificial disc replacement, and computer-guided navigation more. He also has access to the latest diagnostic tools. By harnessing technology, Dr. Choi is able to pinpoint the underlying cause of your pain and treat the issue, while minimizing downtime and discomfort.
A Conservative Approach
Your spine plays a key role in your mobility and overall health and wellness. That’s why we rarely jump right into surgery unless it’s an emergency case. Dr. Choi takes a conservative approach and offers interventional pain management. Many times, a blend of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments can bring about excellent results.
In cases where surgery is necessary, Dr. Choi strives to help you achieve relief using the safest, least invasive procedure. With advanced options, he can often do that while preserving your flexibility and range of motion.
