About Pawel Jankowski, MD

Choosing Your Neurosurgeon and Spine Specialist

Undergoing spine surgery can sometimes bring on feelings of anxiety. Finding a surgeon who takes the time to listen to your concerns, explain your symptoms in detail and propose the correct surgery to treat your symptoms is key to developing a trusting physician-patient relationship. I take great pride in not only educating my patients as to what is responsible for their symptoms by creating a receptive and collaborative environment, but also the confidence they place in me to achieve the desired treatment result.
