Dr. Rossi has a rich family history in healthcare, a philosophy centered on minimally invasive care, and a commitment to patient well-being.

For Dr. Rossi, becoming a doctor was a personal choice and a continuation of a family legacy. Growing up in a family of healthcare professionals, Dr. Rossi was immersed in the world of medicine from a young age.

Dr. Rossi's philosophy of care revolves around using the least invasive methods to help patients regain their desired quality of life. Focusing on motion preservation, he emphasizes non-fusion techniques such as endoscopic spine surgery and disc replacement.

The focus is on formulating a personalized treatment plan that aligns with the patient's goals and helps restore their quality of life.

When patients choose CNSA, they benefit from the collective expertise of a team of elite providers and employees dedicated to delivering exceptional care.
