Care Philosophy

Dr. Caputo has chosen to devote his practice to spine care because he understands that back and neck disorders are the most difficult problems that a patient can face. He strongly believes in spending time with patients, discussing treatment options and answering all questions. He is an advocate of non-surgical treatment for most issues, but can provide state-of-the-art surgical care in appropriate cases.
