Daniel B.

"Coming to SpineCare has been a great experience. Dr. Johnson exudes confidence and goodwill. Before surgery I had difficulty rising onto my right toes. Yesterday, I could rise up without hindrance."

Jo B.

"I had severe lower back pain. My Primary Doctor could not help me or give me medication to help me. Dr. Johnson corrected the issue immediately. I was better as soon as I came out of surgery."

Margarita R.

"I highly recommend Dr. Johnson. I made an appointment with Dr. Johnson because I had huge pain in my back. Dr Johnson was very caring and knowledgeable. The medicine he prescribed worked very well and my back recovery was successful. Moreover during my MRI review Dr. Johnson took time and patiently in detail explained to me all MRI images."

Wilson W.

"Great doc! He laid all the options out clearly and helped me achieve my goal of being able to ski again. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson to anyone who is experiencing back/spine pain."

Dr. Johnson is an expert in the latest minimally invasive, microsurgical and robotic surgical techniques. With a special interest in motion preservation surgery, Dr. Johnson gives his patients the most advanced level of care sought after today.

Minimally Invasive

Minimally Invasive

With Dr. Johnson’s minimally invasive techniques, patients have smaller incisions, less damage to tissues, and shorter hospital stays. His patients also see lower rates of infection and faster recovery times.

Motion Preservation

Motion Preservation

Motion Preservation surgeries create less stress on the spine and allow for faster recoveries. Fusion (fusing together two or more vertebrae so that they heal into a single, solid bone) is used only when absolutely necessary.

Multimodal Analgesia

Multimodal Analgesia

Rather than one high-dose pain medication after surgery, Dr. Johnson uses a scientifically proven combination of synergistic low-dose pain medications. These are administered before, during and after surgery, resulting in better pain control, fewer side effects, and shorter hospital stays.
