“Providing the highest level of spine care in a kind and compassionate environment, is what I strive for with every patient.” Dr. Oishi feels “while it is critical to have the technical expertise to treat complex neurosurgical problems, it is just as important to deliver this care in a manner which completely incorporates the patient’s needs and goals, and treats the patient with great dignity, respect and compassion.” This approach has earned Dr. Oishi his excellent reputation and patient satisfaction. Dr. Oishi specializes in both minimally invasive as well as traditional surgical approaches to the spine.
