Spine Surgeon
The philosophy of immediate mobilization and the quick recovery of the patients after endoscopic and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, because of the minimal surgical incisions and the minimal tissue destruction during spine surgery was what intrigued me scientifically
and it remains my driving force for my continuous expertise in the field of endoscopic and minimally
invasive techniques in spine surgery in the U.S

Innovative Endoscopic & Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques (M.I.S.S) provide solutions for spinal column conditions. This type of Minimally-Invasive Spine Surgery (M.I.S.S) provides patients with quicker recovery and less pain than traditional spine surgery.

The Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Spine, treats the whole spectrum of spinal conditions with modern, advanced techniques.
They are implemented with small incisions of the skin (~1cm) and the use of micro-endoscopic techniques under visual magnification.
This prevents bleeding and minimizes the destruction of adjoining tissues, achieving a great surgical result.

SERGICAL PROCEDURES

Endoscopic Spine Surgery is a type of state-of-the-art surgery that uses small tubular system or micro incisions, assisted with an endoscope for visualization.
