Matching the treatment to the condition

Every patient is different—from the type of condition to the amount of pain they're experiencing—and what works for one person is not always what works for someone else. Dr. Tindel's focus is to find the unique solution that works best for a patient's specific problem.

When surgery is considered, Dr. Tindel spends a significant amount of time educating his patients and their families about everything they need to know about their procedure. Viewing the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership, he encourages them to ask a lot of questions and become active partners in the decision-making process to make sure they understand their condition and treatment options.

Board-certified in orthopaedic surgery, Dr. Tindel specializes in both minimally invasive techniques and complex spinal procedures, including:

  • Microdiscectomy
  • Spinal Fusion
  • Spinal Implants
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Tumors
  • Infections
  • Fractures
  • Complex Revision Spinal Surgery
  • Scoliosis Corrective Surgery
  • Spinal Cord Injury Surgery
  • Cervical Disc Surgery
  • Artificial Disc Replacement
  • Herniated Disc Surgery

Creating a conversation
"I encourage my patients to ask questions—lots of them. It's their backs we're talking about here and it's important that they understand the what, how and why before we ever get to the operating room."
