About Our Practice
Excellent Bracing resources for scoiosis and associated disorders. Both Anterior and posterior surgical approaches available.
Stress conservative management of all adult spinal disorders where possible. Anterior approach to lumbar spine available where indicated (Vascular Surgeon assisted )Several years experience with this approach, and at present registered for the disk replacement course.(FDA presently authorizes only single level L5-S1, or L4-5 disk replacement, so for now indications are limited.) Also,the anterior approach to the lumbar spine is a one-time-only (with rare exceptions)approach.
Our results with cervical disorders are generally excellent. anterior approach, once again is preferred. Bone graft from the patient is no longer necessary. Cervical disk replacement is imminent, and very excitng, as repeated anterior approaches to the cervical spine are not only possible but safe and technically not much more difficult than the first procedure. We have access to excelleent Physiotherapy and any orthotics required for best patient comfort anf results.
