Justin L. Esterberg, MD, is a spine surgeon who treats neck and back conditions. His practice includes treatment of all conditions of the spine, including neck and arm pain, back and leg pain, disk herniations, spinal stenosis, fractures, tumors, scoliosis, and other spinal deformities. He has a special interest in cervical spine (neck) issues. Dr. Esterberg also takes care of patients with injuries to the upper and lower limbs.

Dr. Esterberg’s goal is to help his patients identify the cause of symptoms, learn about that problem, and then discuss the most beneficial types of treatment. He is focused on each individual patient and how a particular issue is affecting a patient’s everyday activities. He will explore the nonsurgical and surgical options, and it is his goal to utilize the least invasive techniques available.

In his spare time, Dr. Esterberg enjoys the city of Seattle and likes to explore his environment. He likes to do just about any sport that involves the mountains or the water—alpine skiing in particular. He was raised in Minnesota, and his favorite sport is ice hockey, which he continues to play, despite the lack of ice here in Seattle.
