About Dr. Corba

Philosophy of care

My goal is to return patients to their prior level of functionality through treatment that is integrated as well as minimally invasive. I believe in a multifaceted approach of conservative care with the patient's best interests in mind.

Why I entered medicine

I had an affinity for the sciences as a student. Medicine naturally followed as my studies advanced. I also volunteered as a middle school/high school student in the local ER, which provided me with exposure to people who were very passionate about medicine.Toward the middle to end of my anesthesia residency, I began to appreciate the technical skills of blocks and procedures that I had learned in residency and how it combined and meshed nicely with the musculoskeletal treatment of spine disorders. As an osteopath, treating underlying musculoskeletal disorders with the interventional therapy that I learned in residency came together nicely.

Community involvement

I serve as vice chair of parks and recreation for our township and have volunteered for local youth groups and the Sanctuary at Haafsville.

Personal interests

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, sports and helping the community.
