About Brian Braaksma

"As a spine surgeon, I emphasize non-surgical treatment options in advance of surgery, holding that as the last resort for my patients. If surgery is necessary, I am trained in the latest minimally invasive spine surgery techniques that reduce the length of the incision, the time in the hospital, and the time needed for recovery."
