MIDDLEBURY-The Addison County Chamber of Commerce announced the opening of Vermont SpineWorks and Rehabilitation, Middlebury's first community-based medical spine center.
Vermont SpineWorks and Rehabilitation was founded by Todd Lefkoe, M.D. Dr. Lefkoe is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and has more than 15 years of experience in the field. He is an expert in problems involving muscle, nerve and bone.
Lefkoe diagnoses and treats conditions that affect how you move. His goal is to relieve pain and improve function without surgery. His areas of specialty include the treatment of back pain, neck pain and work related injuries. He works with patients to identify the root causes of their pain and creates individualized treatment plans to alleviate the pain.
Treatments can include exercise, prescription of physical therapy, medications, soft tissue and joint injections or fluoroscopically-guided injections of the lumbar spine, pelvis or hip joints. All procedures are performed in the comfort of his office. In addition, he performs specialized nerve testing (nerve conductions and EMG) to diagnose nerve entrapments, such as in carpal tunnel syndrome, or spinal nerve root injury, such as may occur following disc herniation.
As a rehabilitation physician, Lefkoe matches treatment goals to each patient's overall functioning and lifestyle and helps patients to stay as active as possible at any age.
Vermont SpineWorks and Rehabilitation is located at 99 Court St. in Middlebury.
