Minimally Invasive Spine Program
Spine conditions are literally a pain in the neck…or back. Getting treatment from doctors specially trained in these conditions and how they affect your entire musculoskeletal system.
Our spine and program particularly focuses on using minimally invasive spine surgery when appropriate. This means we perform surgery with small incisions and use tubes to “tunnel” to where the spine needs work.
Minimally invasive spine surgery causes less muscle and tissue trauma than open surgery. With small incisions, it also:
- Lowers risk of infection.
- Reduces your hospital stay.
- Decreases pain.
- Speeds recovery.
Conditions We Treat With Minimally Invasive Surgery
Because of our surgical expertise, we can use minimally invasive spine surgery on a variety of conditions, including:
- Disc conditions like herniated disc and degenerative disc disease.
- Lumbar pain, stenosis and sciatica.
- Spinal instability and spondylolisthesis.
- Spinal tumors and infections.
- Vertebral compression fractures.
Every patient’s condition and health are unique, and minimally invasive spine surgery isn’t right for every case. We partner with you to plan your treatment around your condition, lifestyle and goals.
That partnership will continue after surgery too. We work with a multidisciplinary team that includes pain management and rehabilitation to reduce your pain and improve your recovery.
