Dr. Bailey specializes in the surgical management of degenerative spine disease of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, utilizing both traditional as well as modern minimally invasive approaches. He has a personal interest in surgical removal of both primary and secondary tumors of the spine. Dr. Bailey enjoys working in collaboration with PCPs, neurologists, pain management specialists, as well as other clinicians in formulating the optimal treatment plan that will allow for an improved lifestyle in patients who suffer from spinal disease.
