Treatments we offer:
Your spine specialist will discuss with you the most appropriate treatment for your condition. Below are a few of the main options available:

Conservative Treatment
Whenever possible, your spine specialist will explore nonsurgical treatments first. These treatments may include medication, pain management techniques, manipulation, acupuncture, bracing or physical therapy.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS)
Depending on your condition, you might be a candidate for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery. MISS is an advanced surgical technique that allows your surgeon to access and treat your spine through tiny incisions using a camera or surgical microscopes. This technique promotes a quicker recovery, minimized blood loss, reduced risk of infections, and minimal disruption of the surrounding muscle tissue. Patients who are candidate for MISS may undergo their procedure under local anesthesia and return home on the same day. Read more about MISS

Surgical Treatment
Sometimes surgery is the only effective treatment option. Although spinal surgery is often delicate and complex, Neuro Spinal Hospital combines expert knowledge and skills with advanced technology to ensure highest standards of safety and obtain the best possible outcomes. All our surgeries are performed in our dedicated Spinal Suite under constant intra operative monitoring to ensure no damage is made to the nerves.
