Spine Surgery

Traditional spine surgery is also called open spine surgery. During surgery, the surgeon makes a large incision (usually about 15 cm long) in the back. In a process called stretching, it breaks the spinal cord muscles apart to move them away from the bone. After making the bones of the spine visible, the necessary spinal process begins.

My Approach

Spinal deformity, spine infections, trauma, spinal tumors, and some degenerative spine conditions such as stenosis and disc herniation may require surgical treatment. 

The spine surgeon may opt for an open (traditional) spine surgery procedure that involves an incision along the spine. The surgeon pulls aside the muscle and soft tissue to access the bones of the spine and spinal cord.

Minimally invasive techniques include a smaller incision and insertion of a tube into which the surgeon inserts small surgical instruments to work on the spine. Minimally invasive techniques can shorten recovery time and reduce the risk of complications.

Robotic spine surgery procedures can use GPS-like tracking systems to assist the spine surgeon in extremely precise placement of screws and other hardware during repair of a damaged or deformed spine.
