Spine Surgery

The Spine Surgery SBMT subcommittee focuses on State-of-the-art diagnostic, surgical tools, and therapeutics. Some topics that we research are:
• Degenerative spine disease
• Spinal deformity (kyphosis/scoliosis)
• Spinal tumors (primary and metastatic bone tumors as well as intradural tumors)
• Spinal trauma
• Osteoporotic and geriatric spinal pathology
• Revision spinal surgery to treat failed fusions or adjacent level pathology
• Intraoperative CT scan and navigation systems
• State-of-the-art neuromonitoring
• CyberKnife radiosurgery
We specialize in traditional open and newer minimally invasive spinal techniques to treat the above pathologies.
