The Latest Techniques in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Our orthopedic spine surgeons use state of the art surgical equipment like our O-arm® Surgical Imaging System to perform less invasive procedures and avoid the potential for later revision surgeries in complex orthopedic cases. This advanced surgical imaging platform gives our spine surgeons real-time, intra-operative imaging of anatomy with high quality 3D images. It helps us accurately visualize and confirm the precise placement of any hardware therapy used in advanced orthopedic surgery procedures, before patients leave the OR.
