Robotic surgery

We are proud to perform robotic surgery for minimally invasive spine procedures. This provides greater precision and range of motion for the surgeon.

Using a CT-generated 3D simulation of your spine, this advanced robotic technology allows our orthopedic surgery team to better plan the procedure before entering the operating room. Robotic surgery requires smaller incisions, which means less scarring, less postoperative pain and faster healing times for you.

Minimally invasive disc surgery

YESS is an alternative approach to spine surgery used to help restore normal function of the spine. During the procedure, your surgeon will make a 1/4-inch incision several inches from the midline of the back. Next, they will insert a small tube with a camera and endoscope (thin instrument with a small light attached) to view the affected area.
 
Using this approach, your surgeon will be able to bypass the spinal column instead of going through it to remove the diseased disc. This also is done without any bone removal, which significantly speeds up your recovery time.

Spinal rehabilitation

We are committed to providing the comprehensive rehabilitative care you need to make a healthy recovery following back or neck surgery. Our licensed physical therapists and rehabilitation specialists focus on helping you regain strength and movement after surgery. They can also help you learn to adapt to any abilities that may have changed due to an injury or diagnosis.
