Conditions and Diagnoses

Dr. Doute' will take on many cases that others will not. He frequently does revision spinal surgeries on those for whom surgery did not work the first time. Tough problems of severe pain and previous failed treatments are his specialty. Dr. Doute’s philosophy of patient care is simple. He treats others as he would himself and his closest family members, working closely with his patients as partners to educate them as to their condition and to help them make decisions.

Dr. Doute' tries to assure that adequate non surgical treatment is done with patients to eliminate their pain, such as physical therapy, medicines, injections, exercise and time, and tries to avoid surgery if possible. However, Dr. Doute’ recognizes that sometime surgery is necessary to fix the patients problem. He realizes that most patients are scared of undergoing surgery, so he tries to do everything to educate his patients about their condition and what they need, to lessen those fears. Dr. Doute’ stays ahead of the curve and keeps up to date on and uses the latest procedures and surgical technology to help his patients. Most importantly, he tries to never give up on patients.
