For Inland Northwest Spine & Neurosurgery, the only important outcome is patient satisfaction, and that doesn’t only mean award-winning surgery. It means that we’ve collaboratively arrived at the best possible place for all of our patients. We spend as much time needed with every patient, discussing all available options. Dr. Dirks and Dr. Blaty emphasize a clear decision process for your treatment:
We may recommend NON-SURGICAL directions – things like Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Care, Steroid Injection, or anti-inflammatory treatments. We don’t reflexively recommend surgery, we explore all other options first.
We may recommend SURGERY. A decision we don’t take lightly, but one we feel would result in the best outcome and recovery.
