Our Approach to Degenerative Spine Disorders

We typically begin your treatment with conservative therapies, such as physical therapy, injections, and pain management, If non-surgical therapies aren’t 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:

  • Artificial disc replacement
  • Corpectomy, discectomy, and decompression surgery
  • Laminectomy, laminoplasty, and laminotomy
  • Microsurgery
  • Osteotomy
  • Spine fusion
  • Robotically assisted open and minimally invasive cervical and lumbar microdiscectomy
