Dr. Perim specializes in both conservative and operative spine treatment. When surgical treatment is necessary his focus is on minimally invasive treatments. Dr. Perim treats degenerative conditions such as spinal stenosis, disc herniations, trauma ,and tumors. He also evaluates pediatric spine patients for scoliosis and stress fractures in the lower back, which are more common with increasing participation in athletics. He treats spinal compression fractures with conservative care or if necessary a special procedure called a kyphoplasty. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can minimize pain after a compression fracture.
