Minimally Invasive Surgery
The advancements in surgical instrumentation over the last 10 to 15 years has paved the way for greater adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures. In the past, many of these procedures were considered major surgery and required long hospital stays. Today surgeons can perform outpatient surgical treatment of the spine through small incisions with minimal disruption of the surrounding muscle tissue.

Non-Surgical Treatments
As specialists in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, we are ideally suited to help patients with acute and chronic pain problems. We offer a full range of diagnostic testing such as EMG, Discograms, Stellate and Sympathetic blocks as well as many treatment plans of the non-surgical nature. These include Epidural Steroid Injections, Facet Blocks, Radio Frequency Lesioning, Prolo Therapy and Spinal Cord Stimulators. Our services include state-of-the-art facilities for physical, occupational and aquatic therapy as well as on-site psychological consults.
