Dr. Ashish Sahai is a board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in spinal surgery. Drawing on his biomedical engineering training as well as his medical experience from Stanford University, Dr. Sahai holds several patents for spinal implants and also is a consultant with several spine surgery device companies to design new techniques and implants. With his experience he teaches other surgeons, both nationally and internationally, and works closely with area hospitals, handling everything from the routine to highly complex spinal surgery cases. The Spine and Orthopedic Center was founded by Dr. Sahai with the intention of combining cutting edge technology with multidisciplinary specialty physicians to supply patients with a comprehensive center that provides the very best outcomes. Dr. Sahai's mission is to provide superior quality care, personalized service, and education to his patients so they can confidently make informed decisions about their treatment plan and lifelong wellness. SOC is fully equipped for diagnosing and treating severely debilitating spinal problems, including a high-field MRI, digital X-ray and fluoro technology, a state accredited sedation procedure suite, and an onsite CLIA & COLA accredited laboratory. This allows Dr. Sahai and his team to successfully handle almost any type of spinal condition and treat it accordingly. Due to the sedation being offered in the office, procedures such as kyphoplasty (cement) for compression fractures, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for neck and back pain as well as epidurals can now be performed on a comfortable, immediate and outpatient basis. Dr. Sahai specializes in minimally-invasive spine surgery -- a less invasive way to approach spine surgery with less blood loss, shorter hospital stay and faster recovery times. Given his extensive experience, he also handles significant cervical related issues from non-operative care to motion-preservation neck surgery and complex cervical reconstructions. Also because he is a staff surgeon at local trauma centers, he handles spine trauma, revision spine surgery, tumor-related spinal conditions and scoliosis surgery.
