Headshot of Michael R. Murray, MD

I believe that in order to obtain the best results, it is essential to understand each patient and tailor their care to their specific spine problem, as well as their goals, activity level, and body type. The ideal treatment plan can take many forms, including the non-surgical techniques of physical therapy or spinal injections. If surgery becomes the most appropriate treatment, I will provide the least invasive surgical option in order to improve each patient's quality of life to the highest degree.
