About


Dr. Sinicropi has been treating Minnesota patients since 2006 at Midwest Spine & Brain Institute.  Over 5000 of his patients have undergone minimally invasive spinal procedures, disc replacements, spinal decompressions and spinal fusions with an exceptional rate of success. He currently serves as the President and CEO of Midwest Spine & Brain Institute in Stillwater, MN.

Spine Patient Satisfaction

Dr. Sinicropi and his team believe that patient satisfaction is dependent on achieving an accurate diagnosis and tailoring a highly specific treatment plan for each patient’s problem.  The highly complex nature of the spinal column, spinal cord, and spinal nerves requires expert diagnosis in order to appropriately treat the underlying condition. Without this diagnosis, treatment will be ineffective.

Dr. Sinicropi has developed a proprietary treatment algorithm for accurate diagnosis and treatment to help patients get back to a normal life.  With the help of his team of physician assistants, Dr. Sinicropi is dedicated to providing personalized and compassionate care to each of his patients. They will walk you through your treatment options and procedures, making sure you are informed every step of the way. Read more about Dr. Sinicropi and his team below.
