The spine is at risk of wearing down with time and is prone to injury. We provide you with the answers to the origin and natural history of your pain. Our team is here to identify your condition and walk with you on the road to recovering your life.
We are at the forefront of technological advances in our field and are committed to sharing the latest innovations in spinal treatment with you. Our medical experts include pain management specialists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists that are exceptional with their results.
Minimally invasive surgery has been shown to be effective treatment for relieving pain.
Decrease Blood Loss
Using the latest technology we are able to significantly reduce the amount of blood loss.
Faster Recovery Times

Cervical Disc Herniation
Disc herniations can be the result of an injury or degeneration of the disc’s structural outer border, referred to as the annulus. This may result in neck pain, radiating extremity pain (radiculopathy), numbness, and weakness.
Cervical Stenosis with Myelopathy
Narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis) can lead to compression of the spinal cord
(myelopathy). This can translate into pain, weakness, perceived extremity heaviness,
numbness, balance difficulties, and lack of coordination.
Similar to the cervical spine, narrowing of the spinal canal (stenosis) in the thoracic region can lead to compression of the spinal cord (myelopathy). This can translate into weakness, numbness, balance difficulties, and lack of coordination among other symptoms. This may result from a number of etiologies including disc protrusions, overgrowth or ossification of the ligamentum flavum (OLF), facet bony overgrowth, tumors, infection, and hematoma.
Lumbar Stenosis & Sciatica
Narrowing of the lumbar spinal canal from disc protrusions, bone spurs, overgrown ligamentous tissue can cause nerve root compression, producing leg pain, numbness, and weakness. This buttock and posterior leg pain (radiculopathy) is commonly referred to as sciatica.
Proliferative tumors over time can expand and cause pain, instability, as well as neurologic compromise that mandates expedient recognition and knowledge of the necessary treatment pathways. Spinal tumors may present with sudden symptoms that require urgent evaluation and intervention.
Osteoporosis, tumors and traumatic injuries can lead to fractures of the spine. Fractures are treated based upon the degree of nerve compression and instability. Improving bone quality, risk modification, and protective equipment can help in successful fracture prevention.
As the facet joints and discs in our spine break down (degenerative disc disease), progressive deformities can develop in multiple planes. This curvature of the spine that results is referred to as degenerative scoliosis and can be painful for many adults as well as change the way they perform daily activities in a debilitating manner.
As supporting structures of the spine are weakened, there is increased micromotion. This motion can be seen once enough instability is present for vertebral translation (spondylolisthesis). This motion can result in pain generation and may necessitate surgical treatment depending on symptoms.
Adjacent Level Disease/Revision Surgery
More commonly seen in the lumbar spine and cervical spine, the increased mechanical stress above and below levels that have already been fused have a cumulative effect of accelerated degeneration. These adjacent levels have the propensity for becoming symptomatic and requiring treatment.
