Spinal Surgery

Your spine is a complex system that includes vertebrae, joints, muscles, disks, and ligaments. As a result, back pain is one of the most common health problems in adults, often the result of compressed nerves.

Your pain may be simply annoying or seriously debilitating, and it might radiate down an arm or a leg, depending on which part of your spine is affected. If you have back pain, your physician will usually try conservative, non-invasive treatments before suggesting spine surgery.

Our Approach

Our physicians are internationally renowned for their ability to diagnose and treat problems of the spine. Traditional spine surgery consists of using bone grafts to fuse adjacent vertebrae, stabilizing your spine, and providing relief from your pain. In the process, however, you may lose some range of motion.

New artificial disks are now available to replace a diseased disk, enabling you to maintain your range of motion. We also provide minimally invasive spinal surgeries to get you back on your feet more quickly with less pain and recovery time.

You will receive excellent care, leading to optimal outcomes, thanks to the leading-edge research conducted by our M Health Fairview physicians. A current body of research focuses on transplanting neural stem cells from the skin into the spinal cord. Other research includes cell tracking through magnetic resonance imaging, animal modeling, and mechanisms of functional recovery using histology and immunohistochemistry.

Conditions We Treat

Back pain leading to surgery can result from a number of conditions, including: Complex Spinal Deformity, Spine Tumors, Spine Trauma, Failed Back Syndrome, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Scheuermann's Disease (also known as Scheuermann's Kyphosis), Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis (DISH), as well as:
