About Our Practice

Our practice is exclusively devoted to Neurosurgical spine surgery and surgical pain management for cervical and lumbar spine problems. We have expertise with cervical disc surgery, cervical disc replacement, cervical fusions, lumbar disc surgery, sciatica, degenerative disc disease with back pain, spondylolisthesis, lumbar fusions, and treatment of failed back syndrome with spinal cord stimulation.

We have considerable experience with minimally invasive techniques including microdiscectomy and use MAST (Minimal Access Spine Technologies) instrumentation such as MetRx and Sextent for percutaneous pedicle screws, use of the X-Stop for spinal stenosis, and XLIF minimally invasive surgery for spinal fusions.

For those with vertebral compression fractures we offer kyphoplasty, and for those with failed back syndrome, comprehensive evaluation and treatment including spinal cord stimulation.
