Minimally Invasive Surgeries

The first thing you should know about the team of surgeons at Marina Spine Center is that we combine cutting-edge surgical technology with advanced knowledge and experience to keep recovery times as short as possible. We do this through a method called minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS). While traditional open spine surgery involves making an incision along the length of the affected area, MISS uses tubular retractors to enter the spinal area through two small incisions through which the procedure is done.

This shortens recovery time because it doesn’t cause as much damage to surrounding tissue and muscle as traditional surgery, giving you the opportunity to get back to normal life as quickly as possible.

Cervical Spine Surgeries

The cervical spine is the upper part of the spinal cord from between the shoulders up. Often pinched nerves and other minor issues will take place in this region. More serious cervical spine disorders include slipped or herniated discs.

These issues can be caused by age, called degenerative conditions, or from trauma to the neck and upper spine area. At Marina Spine Center, we carry out minimally invasive cervical discectomies and other fusion procedures:

Thoracic Spine Surgeries

The thorax is the part of the torso where most organs are held and the area of the spinal cord between the upper and lower parts of the back. We carry out the following thoracic spinal surgeries for our patients:

Lumbar Spine Surgeries

The lumbar spine is the lowest part of the back and can become damaged by sitting in chairs that do not provide sufficient support, as well as by back trauma and other degenerative conditions. Here are some examples of surgical procedures offered by Marina Spine Center aimed at treating lumbar issues:

Non-Operative Care

Marina Spine Center also provides options for spinal conditions that don’t require surgery. Spinal surgery is often complicated to the degree that if something can be treated without it, that’s the recommended route. Here are the methods we use to treat spinal conditions before deciding if surgery is the route that will cause complete remedy:

  • Physical therapy
  • Spinal injections
