Back Doctor Near Me

For patients who are suffering from back conditions of various types, including radiculartype complaints (leg pain) as well as mechanical back pain related to the degenerative process. There is a myriad of new and old technology that allows surgeons to provide the patient significant reduction in their pain with the least amount of surgical dissection. This is typically termed as minimally invasive spinal surgery.

In the past, in the case of spinal fusion surgery, we performed surgery with a large surgical incision for one or two-level disease, with a significant amount of muscle stripping in order to provide adequate visualization to place hardware and bone graft material. With our new technology, we are now able to perform minimally invasive spinal fusion surgery for one to three-level disease in patients who are suffering from both mechanical back pain and leg pain. This technology has improved the patient's ability to recover quickly, reduce their intra-operative bleeding, operative time and hospital stay. It appears post-operatively that many of the patients who have undergone the minimally invasive fusion surgery, as opposed to standard open fusion surgery, have shown a remarkable difference in their post-operative pain management requirements and their ability to return back to a functional life.

Dr Fink’s non invasive surgery procedures are performed to take out herniated, bulging, extruding, & extruded discs, treat fractures in back, perform sacroiliac iliac 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. Most surgeries are done at Lakeshore Surgery Center.
