Official Dr Robert Fink Orthopedic Surgeon Site

Dr Robert J Fink: Dr Fink Orthopedic Surgeon, has been an orthopedic surgeon for over 30 years and is only one of 3 doctors in Chicago, IL performing minimally invasive spine surgery procedures. Non invasive back surgery is also called band aid back surgery, due to the fact that patients leave with only a bandaid or one stitch after the procedure is completed. Dr Fink’s non invasive surgery procedures are performed to take out herniated, bulging, extruding, & extruded discs, treat fractures in back, perform sacroiliac joint fusion, and also remove bone from neural foraminal narrowing. These procedures are done in an outpatient surgical setting. There is no destabilization of your spine by detaching spine muscles with a cut, unlike like traditional open back surgery where patients must be hospitalized after having substantial cuts into their back.

As Chicago grew, its residents took heroic measures to keep pace. In the 1850s, they raised many of the streets five to eight feet to install a sewer system – and then raised the buildings, as well. Unfortunately, the buildings, streets and sidewalks were made of wood, and most of them burned to the ground in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The Chicago Fire Department training academy at 558 W. DeKoven St. is on the site of the O’Leary property where the fire began. The Chicago Water Tower and Pumping Station at Michigan and Chicago avenues are among the few buildings to have survived the fire.

The internal computer of the DRX9000 is programmed by the doctor to target the exact location of your damaged disc for care. During each treatment session, the pulling forces you experience are calculated specifically for you. The DRX9000 on-board computer monitors the decompression forces - 4,000 times per second -- and adjusts them as needed based on your body's response to treatment. This ensures that you experience an accurate and pain-free session.

The Patient Experience

During each treatment session (there will be several), the patient lies on a padded comfortable bed, secured into position by an upper- and lower-body harness. Typically, each session is divided into cycles where spinal decompression forces alternate between a maximum and minimum therapeutic level. The cycling of forces in this manner creates a pumping action that simulates the natural processes responsible for re-nourishing and healing your damaged disc. Most patients experience a gentle stretch in the lumbar spine (or neck). Patients find Spinal Decompression therapy to be quite comfortable and even relaxing. During the session the patient has an opportunity to tune in to a video or music. Few patients may experience mild muscular soreness during treatment, similar to what one might feel when starting a new exercise regimen.
