Specialties

Dr. Michael Bolesta has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopedic Surgery of the Spine

    If you have a back injury or unexplained back pain, your doctor might refer you first to a radiologist and then to an orthopedic spinal surgeon. They specialize in the spine and can diagnose and treat spinal diseases such as scoliosis. They can also treat spinal injuries such as a displaced disc or a fracture, as well as disc degeneration and narrowing that occurs due to aging.
    However, when your injury or condition affects the spinal canal or spinal cord, it’s typically better to consult with a neurosurgeon. It's worth noting that, while they're both referred to as surgeons, they can also recommend treatments that don't require an operation, such as non-surgical decompression therapy.

  • Orthopedic Surgery

    An orthopaedic surgeon is a physician who specializes in diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and disorders involving the musculoskeletal system, such as hip replacements and arthroscopic knee surgery.
    In addition to treating trauma to the musculoskeletal system, these doctors also deal with sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital disorders.

Dr Bolesta made me walk again

I was in a wheelchair. Another surgeon said he would not operate on me. Someone told me about Zale Lipsky hospital. Dr Bolesta made me take some more tests. Said he thought he could help me. After operation I could walk again. And continued graduate studies. He is the very best surgeon and person you could ever hope to find.

Dr. Bolesta and the staff were very polite and professional. They immediately put us at ease. Even though I arrived early for one of the visits, they managed to get me in with only 10 minutes of waiting time. The overall experience receives my highest appreciation. I will recommend Dr. Bolesta and his staff to everyone!
