Top Surgeries We Provide
A highly-skilled surgeon such as Dr. Marc Cohen specializes in the following advanced procedures, which highlight a portion of the services we offer here at the Spine Institute.
Minimally invasive surgeries are the preferred method of treatment these days for back pain. The less the back has to be injured during surgery the better off you will be with a speedier recovery.
Microsurgeries are a particular type of minimally invasive procedures. In a microsurgery, small pieces of bone are removed to alleviate the nerve root. This is the cause of many kinds of back pain in the lumbar region. Incisions for these surgeries are no longer than an inch and a half long.
Laser spinal surgeries are minimally invasive surgeries that utilize lasers for precision in order to avoid damaging sensitive tissues around the spine. Dr. Cohen has performed over 1000 such surgeries throughout his career.
Sometimes this is the best option to treat a particular problem. When all else fails this is the last resort. Dr. Cohen has performed thousands of these surgeries during his lifetime with exceptional results.
