Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Spine surgery may be necessary when less invasive treatments prove ineffective. Our highly regarded spine surgeons are trained in the most advanced spine surgery techniques. 

Peer reviewed medical research is clear that surgery for conditions such as herniated lumbar and cervical discs, spinal stenosis, and lumbar spondylolisthesis are up to 90 percent effective in relieving your pain with minimal recovery time. We also offer vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty. You can avoid the painful and cumbersome braces often used to treat vertebral compression fractures. Our simple procedures “internally brace” your fracture in minutes.

Advantages of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery combines innovative technology with advances in evidence-based medicine. Surgeries originally accomplished through traditional “open” methods are now completed through smaller, less painful incisions. Minimally invasive spine surgery advantages include:

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Faster recovery
  • Less bleeding
  • Shorter hospitalizations
  • Less soft tissue trauma
  • Minimal scarring
  • Fewer complications
  • Earlier return to function
