We know that people are afraid of going to the doctors, and a big part of that is because they are afraid to hear what the doctor has found. Patients are better off figuring out what is happening, and then being proactive about taking care of themselves and their spine.

Through modern technology and innovation, the field of spine treatments has jumped by leaps and bounds over the last ten years. Gone are the days of being sedentary for healing. With modern technology, patients are getting up and moving sooner which means getting back to their lives faster. Here are three of the most advanced treatments for spinal health.


  1. Robotic Spine Surgery
    • Revolutionary new surgical system. Research has shown robotic guidance procedures can improve patients’ safety.
  2. Disc Replacement / Motion Preservation Surgery
    • A damaged disc is removed, and a disc replacement is put in place; thus allowing for motion to continue.
    • Preserving motion in our bodies is inherently good, but also helpful and protective for other discs.
  3. Regenerative Medicine
    • Harnessing the power of natural healing by taking growth factors from our own blood, and using those for our body to heal itself.
