Connecticut Neck and Back Specialists, LLC, is a Danbury-based surgical practice dedicated to the management of spinal disorders. By focusing on treating complex spinal deformities and spinal-revision surgeries, its fellow-trained surgical team of Dr. David L. Kramer and Dr. David A. Bomback provides the highest-quality, evidence-based management of spinal disorders. Together they offer the most state-of-the-art, minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible. In addition to treating degenerative and traumatic disorders of the cervical and lumbar spine, theirs is one of the few state practices with special expertise treating the potentially debilitating conditions of scoliosis and kyphosis in both adults and adolescents.
Dr. David A. Bomback, a graduate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, who completed his orthopaedic residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital and a spine and scoliosis fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, is the medical director of the Orthopedic-Neurosurgery Unit at Danbury Hospital. According to Dr. Bomback, “We have seen dramatic changes in the field of spinal surgery over the past decade. Not only has the technology vastly improved, but our ability to treat patients in a less-invasive manner is truly remarkable. Procedures in the past that warranted a three- to four-day hospital admission are now routinely being done as outpatient surgery. It’s extremely gratifying and rewarding to return patients to their normal lifestyles expeditiously.”
Dr. David L. Kramer, a Dartmouth Medical School graduate who completed the Harvard orthopaedic residency program at Massachusetts General Hospital and his orthopedic/neurosurgical fellowship in spine surgery at the Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson Hospital, serves on the board of directors at Danbury Hospital and Western Connecticut Health Network. He is also the director of The Spine Center at Danbury Hospital. “When it comes to considering spine surgery, we realize many decisions can be hard to make. By taking the time to educate our patients, we help to make informed decisions regarding the best surgical or nonsurgical treatments. It’s not only about a consistently good surgical outcome; it’s about patient satisfaction.”
Both surgeons are involved in ongoing clinical research to assess the efficacy of the latest surgical and nonsurgical spinal-treatment techniques.
