Minimally invasive spine surgery

With the incorporation of robot-assisted surgical technology at our Surgical Robotics Institute, we offer patients smaller incisions, less scarring, faster recoveries and enhanced outcomes. This technology allows our spine surgeons to plan procedures before surgery and gives them extreme accuracy during procedures.

The robotic platform provides 3D pictures of your back, spine and neck bones, so the surgeon can place hardware in precisely the right location. Hardware placement is checked before leaving the operating room, minimizing the need for follow-up adjustment procedures.

Spine therapy and rehabilitation

After your spine surgery, our team of specialists will help you recover and rehabilitate to get back to the activities you enjoy.

This physical therapy and rehabilitation can help:

  • Decrease any swelling and pain
  • Promote your return to performing daily activities, such as walking, bathing, dressing and grooming
  • Restore your strength

Your therapy program is determined by your physical and occupational therapists and approved by your surgeon.
