The ultimate goal in treating any spinal condition is the restoration of function and the reduction or elimination of pain.
Often, spinal problems involve undue pressure on the nerves of the neck or lower back, which can create symptoms of cervical or lumbar radiculopathy, cervical myelopathy or lumbar stenosis. Occasionally, such issues can also accompany an abnormal slippage between spinal vertebrae (spondylolisthesis) or an abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis or kyphosis).
When evaluating a spinal problem, we perform a complete evaluation that takes into account spinal structure, alignment and stability, bone quality, and nature and location of nerve impingement. We create a plan of treatment that also incorporates the patient’s activity level and general health.
No two patients are exactly alike, and therefore, our treatment plans are customized to the individual scenario.

Much of the time, in our experience, the majority of patients with lower back or neck problems can be effectively treated without surgery. In those who do require surgery, our philosophy is that surgery should involve the least invasive techniques, keeping restoration of function as the top priority.
We routinely use robotic technology and spinal navigation to increase the safety and accuracy of the procedures. Whenever possible, we use motion-preservation techniques or non-fusion options that preserve the natural spinal motion and shorten the postoperative recovery time.
With our advanced techniques, most patients can skip the hospital altogether, have their procedure in our state-of-the-art surgical center, leave the same day and recover in the comfort of their own home.
Many of our patients travel from afar for the care that we provide.
