WHAT TO EXPECT YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT?
Executive spine surgery specializes in the treatment of neck and back pain and disorders in the least invasive nature. They take a multidisciplinary approach to spinal disorders combining the best of conservative and operative treatment.
Treatment Options For Back Pain
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery is a type of advanced spine surgery that does not require general anesthesia and is performed via a small incision that’s usually smaller than one inch. The procedure is carried out using tubular retractors and a microscope. This approach significantly decreases recovery time, muscle and skin retraction, tissue damage and pain. Minimally invasive spinal surgery can be used to treat a variety of conditions including spinal stenosis, disc herniation, instability and spondylolithesis.
Endoscopic Spine Surgery
Endoscopic spine surgery is a minimally invasive technique that involves inserting an endoscope into the spine via a tiny incision. When the endoscope is properly placed, a laser is used to burn off soft tissues, while other small instruments are used to gently remove ligaments, discs and bone.
Benefits Of Endoscopic Laser Spine Surgery
Traditional spinal surgery can cause considerable damage to ligaments, bones and muscles. The result can be increased pain, muscle weakness and scar tissue following surgery. Endoscopic laser spine surgery can effectively treat back and spinal conditions with less muscle, ligament, tissue and bone damage. There is also less post-operative pain and less downtime than with traditional open back surgery. Endoscopic laser spine surgery can effectively treat bone spurs, back pain, numbness, weakness, leg pain, bulging discs and a variety of other conditions.
Additional Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures
Dr. Spivak performs a variety of treatments for back pain that do not involve surgery. These treatment options are preferable to surgery and can effectively relieve long-term pain and discomfort:
Steroidal medication injections to relieve pain, inflammation and swelling.

Spinal cord stimulation to treat chronic pain.
