Paul B. Canale, M.D.

Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon

“While the technical and analytical abilities provided by training as a mechanical engineer have uniquely contributed to my skills as an orthopaedic surgeon, what my patients appreciate equally is that the quality of care and compassion that I provide them is the same as I would wish for my family or myself. Treating others as I would want to be treated is the guiding philosophy of my practice of medicine.”

Paul Canale, M.D.
Our fellowship-trained team offers patients faster relief from pain through minimally-invasive spine surgeries that feature smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times as compared to traditional open back surgeries.
