Minimally invasive spine surgery
We will work with you to determine the most effective treatment plan for your condition and lifestyle. If spine surgery is necessary, we use minimally invasive procedures whenever possible.
With the incorporation of advanced techniques, such as robot-assisted surgical technology, we are able to offer smaller incisions, less scarring, faster recoveries and enhanced outcomes. This technology also contributes to effectively planning your procedure before surgery.
Our robotic platform for spine surgery provides 3D pictures of your back, spine and neck bones, so the surgeon can place hardware in precisely the right location. These placements are checked before leaving the operating room, minimizing the need for follow-up adjustment procedures.
We also provide physical therapy and rehabilitation after surgery to help you recover.

Important information to know
Neck and back pain are common conditions. The pain can range in severity and may be acute, coming on suddenly and lasting a few days to a few weeks, or chronic, lasting for more than three months.
Causes of back pain
There are many reasons you may experience back pain, including:
- Accidents, such as injuries from sports, falls or vehicle accidents
- Normal wear and tear, such as that caused by aging or bone spurs
- Poor posture, such as sitting or standing unnaturally
- Poor body mechanics, such as incorrectly standing, sitting, lifting, sleeping or lying down
- Poor physical conditions, such as being overweight or having weak muscles

- Numbness or tingling
- Pain after a fall or an injury
- Severe pain that does not improve with medication and/or rest
You should also see a doctor if you are experiencing back pain accompanied by any of the following symptoms:
