Dr. Chung is a published author and expert in the latest advances in surgical techniques involving minimally invasive surgery, motion preservation technologies (including artificial disc replacement), and microsurgical procedures. Although he is well-trained in all aspects of surgical spinal care for the neck and back he has a conservative approach to patient care.
"I believe a great number of patients can improve with conservative care. I reserve surgical recommendations for those patients whose neurologic deficits necessitate it, and whom I believe I can truly help."
