Dr. Anaizi’s Philosophy of Care
I understand how frightening the prospect of brain or spine surgery is for my patients. It is my responsibility to help them understand their conditions and offer clear and detailed guidance so they can make informed decisions about their surgical options.
I recognize that these decisions are not easy. I treat my patients as I would treat my own family, when I counsel them on their options. I explain that surgery is considered only when nonsurgical interventions are not appropriate or have been unsuccessful. I want them to feel comfortable and safe. If they decide on surgery, whenever possible, I provide minimally invasive treatment that reduces risks and allows my patients to recover quickly, and return to their lives. My goal is to improve my patients’ quality of life.
