Dr. John E. Sherman, MD, Edina, MN, 55435

Comprehensive care of spinal problems. Surgical treatment is indicated when non-operative care is not effective. Surgical treatment should be as minimally invasive to affect the best result. I am involved in the rapidly changing arena of motion preservation surgery.
