Michael Conti Mica, MD

Philosophy of Care

I strive to provide the right treatment options for each individual patient. Developing personalized care centered around each patient’s goals that are aligned with outcome-driven, evidence-based medicine is fundamental to my philosophy. My goal is to get you better so that you can focus on living your life and not managing your condition.

Fortunately, most neck and back problems can be resolved with non-surgical care. Our integrated team will guide your treatment and efficiently coordinate your care. If surgery is necessary, I am trained in both cutting-edge open and minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of various spine conditions. I specialize in the treatment of degenerative and traumatic spine conditions with particular interest in minimally invasive, motion preserving, and robotic-assisted spine surgery.

Whether your goal is to return to professional sport or lifting your grandchild, I will treat you with compassionate diligence.
