Suffering from chronic neck and back pain may mean you have difficulty walking or standing for long periods of time. Back pain from a degenerative spine condition can make it difficult to move or twist without pain, which can in turn keep you from the activities that you enjoy. If you are experiencing this pain and have talked to your doctor, it is likely that you have been advised to have open back surgery to fuse your spine together.
Open back fusions require a lengthy stay in the hospital and the surgery itself is very invasive; during traditional surgery the muscles are cut and disrupted, which can mean recovery time as long as six months to a year. We offer an alternative to traditional open back fusion, called Minimally Invasive Stabilization. These surgeries provides more precise treatment for your spine condition, and can be performed with little to no negative effects on the muscles in your back. We perform these surgeries as outpatient procedures, so there is no need for an overnight hospital stay.
