Through their fellowship training, our surgeons have acquired advanced skills, staying at the forefront of medical advancements in the field. This expertise enables them to offer our patients the most cutting-edge techniques and technologies available.

Years of Experience: The Power of Seasoned Practice

With a wealth of experience in spinal surgery, our surgeons have honed their skills to perfection. Over the years, they have successfully treated numerous patients, developing an intimate understanding of the complexities of the spine. This extensive experience enables us to approach each case with precision and confidence, ensuring optimal surgical outcomes.

The Latest in Surgical Technologies: Precision & Excellence

Our commitment to providing all of our patients with optimum care includes utilizing the latest advances in surgical technologies to enhance the precision and efficacy of minimally invasive spine surgeries. Some of the cutting-edge techniques and technologies we use include:

  • Minimally Invasive Techniques
    Enabling top-of-standard results while minimizing surgical trauma, these techniques involve smaller incisions, reduced muscle damage, and faster recovery times for our patients.
  • Robotic-assisted Surgery
    The power of state-of-the-art robotic systems significantly adds to surgical precision and accuracy. These advanced technologies allow us to navigate intricate spinal structures with unprecedented control and minimal invasiveness, ensuring superior surgical outcomes.
  • Image-guided Navigation
    Advanced imaging technology plays a pivotal role in guiding our surgical procedures. Real-time visualization and precise placement of instruments enhance the accuracy of our surgeries, leading to improved patient outcomes, recovery, and overall satisfaction.

Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgeries Treat a Range of Conditions

Through all our extensive training and years of performing successful spinal surgeries, our team has collectively treated a comprehensive array of spinal pains, conditions, and injuries through minimally invasive spine surgery. Some of the common conditions we can address include:

Herniated Discs: Minimally invasive techniques can effectively alleviate pressure on spinal nerves caused by herniated discs, resulting in pain relief and improved mobility.

Spinal Stenosis: We utilize minimally invasive procedures to alleviate the narrowing of the spinal canal—reducing pain and restoring function.

Spondylolisthesis: Using advanced techniques, we can stabilize and realign slipped vertebrae affected by spondylolisthesis, providing lower back pain relief and enhancing spinal stability.

Spinal Fractures: Minimally invasive approaches can help stabilize spinal fractures, caused by trauma from accidents, falls, or sports, improving healing and reducing pain.

Degenerative Disc Disease: A common condition characterized by the gradual deterioration of spinal discs over time, minimally invasive surgeries such as disc replacement and spinal fusion can provide spine stability and pain relief.

Sciatica: Surgeries such as discectomy or laminectomy can help alleviate this radiating pain that occurs along the sciatic nerve, often caused by compression or irritation.

Spinal Tumors: Utilizing advanced imaging and surgical techniques, we can precisely target and remove tumors, minimizing damage to surrounding tissues and reducing post-operative recovery time.

Spinal Instability: Whether caused by injuries, degenerative conditions, or previous surgeries, instability can be improved with stabilization procedures such as spinal fusion or dynamic stabilization.

Spinal Deformities: Through minimally invasive techniques, we can correct spinal deformities—including scoliosis and kyphosis—to realign and stabilize the spine, resulting in improved posture and reduced pain.

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome: With advanced imaging and minimally invasive surgical techniques, we can identify and address the underlying causes of failed back surgery, providing pain relief and improved spinal function.

If you are suffering from herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, or any other spinal condition, EmergeOrtho—Blue Ridge Region’s team of spinal surgeons is equipped to provide a comprehensive, individualized assessment of your condition and the appropriate minimally invasive treatments and procedures for improved outcomes.
