A few decades ago, traditional spine surgery required extensive dissection of the tissue surrounding the spine along with several post-surgical complications.   After intensive research and improvement in both technology and surgical techniques, minimally invasive spine surgery has been proven to yield fewer blood loss, less scarring, less infections and lower post-surgical pain levels.  Most patients who undergo minimally invasive procedures, leave the hospital to return home the same day as the surgery.

Why would a patient see a neurosurgeon for a spine condition? Neurosurgeons are much more than brain doctors.  In fact,  neurosurgeons are trained to treat the entire nervous system which includes disorders of the spinal cord and column.  The most common type of conditions treated at NeuroSurgery Medical Associates are related to the spine.  Furthermore, not every treatment falls into a surgical procedure.  On the contrary, the majority of treatment options for spinal conditions involve non-surgical options such as medication, injections and/or physical therapy.   Below, there is a list of the most common spine treatment options provided:
