His interests are in various conditions of the adult spine, including low back pain, sciatica, radiculopathy, spinal stenosis, degenerative disk disease, disk herniation, spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, myelopathy and trauma of the spine. He brings with him a wide variety of procedures to treat these conditions, including anterior and posterior approach spinal fusion surgery, disc replacement surgery, motion-preserving decompression of the cervical and lumbar spine, SI joint fusion, navigation-guided spine surgery, balloon kyphoplasty, and minimally invasive spinal surgery. While able to provide care through these specialized procedures, Dr. Cook emphasizes the importance of conservative treatment modalities.
