Spine-Related Problems We Treat


The Latest Techniques in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Our orthopedic spine surgeons use state-of-the-art surgical equipment, called Mazor X, to perform less invasive procedures and avoid the potential for later revision surgeries in complex cases. This advanced technology gives our spine surgeons the ability to pre-plan your spine surgery, and to confirm the precise placement of implants and hardware.
