We specialize in revision back procedures to treat you if you had an instrumented procedure by another surgeon. An instrumented procedure might be a neck/cervical fusion, an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion or it could be a lumbar fusion. We regularly repair these problems with success.
Revision back surgery is complicated. While it often requires a lengthy hospitalization, we are usually able to accomplish it outpatient. Our minimally invasive techniques can repair your problem and yet allow you to walk the very next day at home.
We perform revision lumbar fusion, revision pseudo screw fusion, and anterior cervical fusions.
