Complex Spinal Surgeries in Washington DC
Minimally Invasive Treatments Are Available
Complex spine procedures, such as fusion of the vertebrae to stabilize the spine, often require open surgeries to allow access to sensitive areas such as the cervical spine (neck). However, when the vertebrae are easily accessible, as in the lumbar spine (low back), minimally invasive procedures are increasingly used to treat more complicated disorders. Other complex spine procedures include general open surgeries to treat spinal injuries or to remove spinal tumors.
