Surgical Treatment Options

Only a small percentage of people with back pain have conditions that require surgery. If you’re one of the few people who do, a minimally invasive procedure is likely the solution that will help reduce or eliminate your pain. We specialize in minimally invasive surgery, which requires smaller incisions. This means less pain and a quicker recovery for you. Other key benefits are:

  • Little to no scarring
  • Less damage to surrounding tissues
  • Reduced pain
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Better long-term results
  • Fewer complications and revisions

In minimally invasive surgery, we're able to access hard-to-reach areas through tiny incisions; using specialized instruments, we can see the exact positioning of the surgical instruments on a high-definition monitor. These advanced tools, along with the surgeons’ expertise, equip us to perform the procedures more accurately, with better results.

The most common minimally invasive procedures we perform include:

  • Decompression
  • Discectomy and Microdiscectomy
  • Disc replacements
  • Laminotomy
  • Laminoplasty
  • Spinal fusion, including XLIF (eXtreme Lateral Interbody Fusion)
