Dr. Mark Valente Dr. Valente believes in the human body’s ability to heal itself. Every attempt is made to help his patients regain a healthy, happy, and fully functional lifestyle without surgery. He utilizes a variety of treatment modalities such as anti-inflammatory medications, analgesics, physical therapy, aquatic therapy, massage, ultrasound, injection therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic care when appropriate. Only when a patient has been unable to alleviate symptoms with non-surgical treatments is surgery considered as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. He performs all aspects of spinal surgery (cervical, thoracic and lumbar), including minimally invasive procedures for herniated discs, stenosis, spondylolisthesis, compression fractures, trauma and degenerative disc disease. He also performs complex spinal reconstruction and deformity surgeries, including scoliosis and revision surgery for patients who have undergone previous spinal surgery without success. Dr. Valente has extensively lectured, as well as researched and presented his findings, to physicians and surgeons nationally and internationally.
