Spine care

Our Miami location now offers treatment for all spine conditions. Dr. Kevin McCracken is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine specialist who brings 25 years of experience in all areas of spine care, ranging from the least invasive spine techniques to complex reconstructive spine deformity & scoliosis surgery to our practice. When appropriate, he also exhausts conservative non-surgical approaches to spine care before considering if/which surgical option would be best for the individual patient.
