Helping patients and their families get through devastating and unexpected injuries is something Dr. Mushlin is passionately committed to. While the cases that Dr. Mushlin and his colleagues handle run the gamut from simple to complex, his practice specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of complex spine disease. This includes spinal stenosis, degenerative disease, tumors, trauma, revision surgery and scoliosis. His treatment expertise also includes minimally invasive techniques to help reduce the risk of surgery and provide the best surgical outcomes for his patients. For Dr. Mushlin, creating a balanced approach that aligns with the goals and expectations of both the patient and the doctor is critical to success.
