Areas of Specialization
Complex spine surgery refers to surgical cases that treat complex conditions such as scoliosis, adult spine deformities or surgery across more than three spinal segments (or levels). These surgeons have a subspecialty in complex spine surgery.
Minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS) aims to stabilize the vertebral bones and spinal joints and relieve pressure on the spinal nerves.
