Surgical Treatments

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Our goal is to provide the most advanced and cutting-edge minimally invasive surgical (MIS) treatments for patients with degenerative and complex spinal disorders. Minimally invasive spine surgery is a procedure that allows for treatment through small incisions and targeted approaches to decrease muscle and soft tissue injuries. With smaller incisions and more targeted approaches, there is an overall decrease in soft tissue damage leading to quicker recovery and decreased surgical infection rates. Clinical studies have demonstrated that Minimally Invasive Surgery decreases surgical blood loss, hospitalization time, overall recovery time and time away from work.

Traditional and Minimally Invasive Surgery options can include:

  • Microdiscectomy
  • Microlaminectomy
  • Spinal Decompression
  • Cervical and Lumbar Spine Fusion
  • Discectomy
  • Sympathectomy
  • Laminectomy

Non-Surgical Options

Our experts have access to a host of non-operative treatments to design a treatment plan that best fits the patient's lifestyle. Not all back or neck conditions require surgery. In fact, many ailments can be treated with a conservative approach.

Non-surgical options can include:

  • Medications
  • Physical Therapy
  • Spinal Injections
