Surgery for these conditions -- for myelopathy in particular -- can be very challenging because they involve such a tiny, delicate area. Decompression surgeries are commonly practiced under a surgical microscope and involve the removal of bone spurs, disc material, and scar tissue surrounding the nerve roots or spinal cord. Choosing highly specialized spine surgeons with advanced training and skill means you have a safer procedure and better outcomes. We are one of the busiest spine centers in the area. We perform more than 1,200 spine surgeries and complex spine procedures every year.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeries
Many patients benefit from minimally invasive procedures, which rely on microscopes and tiny instruments to access the spine through small incisions. This technique avoids the need for significant muscle damage, results in less pain, and helps you recover faster.
Intraoperative Imaging Technology
We are one of the few centers in the U.S. that offers advanced intraoperative capabilities with CT and MRI. That means our surgeons use detailed, 3-D pictures of your spine and the tiny nerves and roots of your spinal cord to guide them as they operate.
In addition to our orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons, our team includes nonoperative doctors and nurses, acupuncturists, a psychologist, pain management experts, and physical therapists -- all of whom may play a role in helping to alleviate the pain, pressure, and inflammation caused by your stenosis or myelopathy.
Personalized Therapy Plans
We offer effective therapeutic and nonsurgical treatment options. Your doctor will develop a personalized treatment plan for you that includes medication and/or injections with physical therapy. We also offer nontraditional options such as acupuncture.
