We offer minimally invasive spine surgery. It is a type of surgery on the bones of your spine (backbone). This type of surgery uses smaller incisions than standard surgery. This often causes less harm to nearby muscles and other tissues. It can lead to less pain and faster recovery after surgery. Learn more about this procedure.

We use the least invasive treatments in order to restore maximum function. By offering a full range of diagnostic and treatment services, each patient receives a customized course of treatment designed to improve your quality of life.
