Our Team

Our Approach to Degenerative Spine Disorders

We begin your treatment with conservative therapies, such as physical therapy, injections, and pain management. If non-surgical therapies are not successful, our surgeons perform minimally invasive procedures to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves and microdiscectomy to remove the herniated portions of a damaged disc. Our spine surgeons are highly experienced performing:

  • 3D-navigation for spine surgery
  • Endoscopic and minimally-invasive disc resection
  • Endoscopic and minimally-invasive laminectomy
  • Endoscopic and minimally-invasive foraminotomy
  • Artificial disc replacement
  • Microsurgery
  • Anterior corpectomy, discectomy, and decompression surgery
  • Laminectomy, laminoplasty, and laminotomy
  • Minimally invasive spine fusion
