Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Patients who suffer from chronic back or neck pain often struggle to get through a day. When non-surgical options fail, many aren't sure where to turn. Surgery involves some big decisions, including selecting a surgeon, hospital, rehabilitation program and follow up care plan. Patients should look for spine surgeons with a proven track record who can recommend and perform the best treatment options for a quick recuperation and pain-free life.
