Dr. Debkowska is a firm believer in conservative treatment using the least invasive methods possible. She only recommends surgical treatment after considering all non-operative options. Dr. Debkowska wants you to know that when you come to see her, she will listen to your concerns and together create a treatment plan that best suits your needs. She encourages patients to ask questions about their care and be directly involved in the decision-making process.
