MichaelMoghimi, MD

Austin's Spine Specialist

I believe in a comprehensive approach to spine care, which includes both non-operative and operative treatments. Surgery should always be a last resort, but when necessary, I strive to provide the best care using the newest and most innovative technologies available including minimally invasive spine surgery.
