Since founding Spine Associates in 2003, Dr. Francis has built a considerable reputation by maintaining a conservative approach to treating all spine conditions in both children and adults. He has made it his goal to stay at the forefront of technology, yet maintain a personal connection with patients and their families. All patients are offered an appointment to see Dr. Francis within 3 days of their initial call and in some case a same day appointment if necessary. Patients are personally seen directly by Dr. Francis at every single visit.
Dr. Francis and his staff at Spine Associates emphasizes the value of conservatism. Many spine conditions can be resolved with non-operative care and surgery as an option is only considered after exhausting all other reasonable forms of more conservative treatment options. Spine Associates has spent decades building solid, long term dependable relationships with numerous health care specialists including teams of neurologists, physiatrists, and other pain specialists to assure high quality and timely delivery of patient care. Dr. Francis prides himself as one of the first surgeons in the nation asked to perform the artificial disc replacement and to use robotic assistance in spine surgery.
