Our Doctor

Dr. Louis Quartararo

Dr. Q has dedicated his career to developing the least invasive spine surgery procedures to improve outcomes and help patients avoid the long hospital stays, recovery times and scarring associated with traditional open surgeries. As a recognized authority in endoscopic spine surgery, he performs almost 90% of his spine surgeries on an outpatient basis so you can recover in the safety and comfort of your home.

With 33 bones and extensive nerve tissue along your spine, it takes an experienced specialist to diagnose the exact cause of back pain. The first step toward relief is getting the most accurate diagnosis possible. Dr. Q is an expert diagnostician who takes ample time to explain your condition in terms you can understand and review all your treatment options. He frequently provides second opinions for your peace of mind.

    Dr. Quartararo and his staff were wonderful. I had surgery 4 days ago and I am currently recovering. Every time I talked to Dr. Quartararo he spoke to me like a friend and not like a patient. I am very satisfied with his work so far.
