Dr. Curry's philosophy of back surgery is this: "Spinal disorders are complex and the approach to treatment should be tailored to each patient. Many problems can be managed without surgery but when nonoperative treatment fails, surgery can help relieve pain and improve function. The decision to proceed with the surgery is an important one and must be made with an understanding of the risks, benefits, and alternatives to surgical intervention. As your surgeon, I will carefully explain your diagnosis, imaging results and treatment options so that you can make the decision that is best for you."
Dr. Curry loves meeting new patients at Gove County Medical Center. We are grateful for his expertise in patients with spinal orthopedic disorders.
