Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery
Dr. Shah can use tissue sparing techniques to improve your disabling spinal conditions.
While Dr. Shah performs open surgeries, he is internationally known for his pioneering work in minimally invasive techniques. Over time, he and his team have expanded the breadth of neck, back and spine conditions
that can be addressed with this approach.
Today, the extensive experience of Premier Orthopedic Spine Associates enables them to help with a full range of neck, back and spinal conditions. This includes many complex procedures such as revision surgery, multiple-level disease, fusions, nerve compression and deformities using minimally invasive techniques.
As a result, more and more patients are able to experience the benefits of minimally invasive surgery. A targeted, more flexible approach that does less “damage” to nearby tissue than open surgery, minimally invasive surgery can be more precise in effecting a cure. Patients typically experience less pain and fewer complications, and have shorter hospital stays and a faster recovery, without compromising long-term results. Because of the benefits of minimally invasive surgery, patients who might otherwise be unable to undergo spinal surgery now have more options, and may benefit from minimally invasive procedures.
Exceptional patient care is our number one priority, with a particular focus on accurate diagnosis and providing the most appropriate surgical or nonsurgical treatment. From diagnosis to the development of a treatment plan to postoperative care, we balance the advantages of cutting-edge technology, such as disk replacement and minimally invasive techniques, with more well-known, standard open procedures to develop a treatment plan that is specifically tailored to each individual patient.
Premier Orthopaedic Spine Associates can help you to identify and isolate the condition/s you have. By individualizing and personalizing your treatment options, our team can help you to choose the right pathway to get you back on the right track.
