Dr. Stanford Tack is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in treating disorders of the cervical and lumbar spine in adults. He provides care for stenosis, herniated disks and spondylolisthesis. Dr. Tack has extensive experience in performing cervical disk replacement in patients who previously have been treated with cervical fusion.

He performs most of his procedures using minimally invasive techniques that reduce patients’ pain and speed their recovery times. Dr. Tack usually is able to perform surgery as an outpatient procedure, and patients typically do not require physical therapy or other post-operative care.

The son of a nurse, Dr. Tack inherited his mother’s aptitude for caring for others, which combined with his interest in science led him to become a physician. Other members of his family are engineers, and he chose to specialize in orthopedics because it combines his familial background in medicine and mechanics.

In providing care, Dr. Tack begins with a conservative approach and spends a great deal of time working with patients to provide them with non-surgical management of their condition. He is very selective about when he recommends surgery for patients in order to make certain they need and will benefit from the procedure.
