Our areas of specialization


Disc replacement is an alternative surgical option for people who might otherwise undergo spinal fusion surgery due to degenerative disc disease, bulging or herniated discs, or other painful disc-related issues. The procedure can be used for damaged discs anywhere in the spine, including cervical disc replacement.

A normal spine, when viewed from the side, has a series of curves which give it a gentle “S” shape, while it appears straight when viewed from the back. When these curves are too exaggerated, or when your spine curves the wrong direction or is rotated, this is considered a spinal deformity.

RECONSTRUCTIVE
SURGERY


Reconstructive spine surgery is generally only used to correct the most severe of spinal problems, and is usually recommended only if both non-surgical treatments and minimally invasive surgery have not achieved results. It has a higher risk of complications than minimally invasive procedures, and requires an experienced and highly-trained surgeon.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE
SURGERY


Surgery of any type is, by definition, invasive. Surgery involves incisions, with accompanying trauma to muscles, skin, blood vessels, and other structures and tissue as an unavoidable result. Minimally invasive surgery, as its name implies, is intended to keep this collateral trauma to a minimum.
