Our advanced technologies can help you get relief from a wide range of spine conditions, with less scarring and discomfort and shorter recovery time. Our neurosurgical spine team is well versed in minimally invasive techniques as they apply to spinal cord decompression, disc replacement, spinal fusion, tumor removal and many other surgical procedures.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE APPROACHES
 

Robotic Technology

Our robotic spine surgery system offers real-time feedback while your procedure is taking place, ensuring precise placement of screws and other hardware.

Special Tools

Surgical tools such as the endoscope and the special retractor tubes allow our surgeons to move healthy tissues aside to access the problem in the spine through a small incision.

Better Angles

For some procedures, such as spinal fusion and disc replacement, we can access the spine from the side rather than the back, making it easier to get to the spine without disrupting major muscles.

Is minimally invasive spine surgery right for you?

We approach every surgical procedure with the goal of relieving pain and restoring function while getting you back to your life as soon as possible. Although minimally invasive spine surgery can often deliver on these goals, it is not right for everyone. Among others, patients who had prior surgeries, and those with large or complex deformities or large spine tumors, might benefit more from a traditional surgical approach. If you are interested in minimally invasive spine surgery, contact us for an evaluation.
