Latest technology in spinal treatment
Minimal Access Spine Surgery (MASS)

Minimal Access Spine Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that consists of making 1.6-2.0 cm incisions in the back, through which the surgeon inserts a small tube to the spine. This specialized equipment, used in combination with an endoscope, makes the operation very precise and effective. Patients appreciate this innovative treatment technology because of its small wounds, low risk of infection, reduced bleeding, and minimal pain and disability, which leads to faster recovery and return to normal activities.

Total Artificial Disc Replacement (TADR)

Total artificial disc replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces degenerative discs of the lumbar or cervical spine with artificial discs that are designed to imitate the functions of a natural disc and allow as normal as possible motion after surgery.

Percutaneous Vertebroplasty / Kyphoplasty

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that is designed to relieve the pain of compression fractures associated with osteoporosis or spinal tumors. Bone cement is injected into the fractured spine to relieve pain and strengthen vertebral bodies. Both Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty are performed under local or general anesthesia, which offers speedy and long-term relief from osteoporosis-related back pain.
