Together with our advanced practice providers (APPs), Dr. McGowan diagnoses and treats patients with a variety of back and neck pain and complex spinal conditions including:
- Scoliosis. Scoliosis surgery for adults may be a consideration for patients who develop adult-onset scoliosis, which is a curvature of the spine that develops due to injury or aging. Whenever possible, our Westminster spine surgeon recommends conservative therapies like physical therapy and injections, interventional pain management procedures, and minimally invasive spine surgery.
- Back and Neck Pain. Most adults will suffer from back or neck pain at some point in their lives. At Neurosurgery One, wealways start with conservative methods for back and neck pain, only recommending spine surgery if absolutely necessary.
- Spinal deformities. Spinal deformities can develop as people age or be present from birth (congenital). Often,
- spinal deformities can impact quality of life, restrict activities, and cause pain or balance issues.
- Traumatic spine injuries. While never something you plan for, traumatic spine injuries require prompt and precise treatment. Dr. McGowan has deep experience in working with patients who suffer traumatic spine injuries from skiing, hiking, athletic, and automobile accidents. Read the story of the paraglider who fell over 100 feet but was running again in just months after Dr. McGowan performed his surgery.
