I have been involved with orthopedic surgery and spine care since 1986. I have watched spinal surgery involved, and had developed minimal invasive spinal surgery, and now taking it to the next level, super minimal invasive spinal surgery. Spinal surgery Denton incision no bigger than 1/4 inch, allowing the disc to be removed and fusion, through endoscopic techniques. Similarly placement of screws and rods, 2 small incisions, measuring no greater than 3/8 inch long. This for allowing decompression of nerve roots, and stabilization with fusion. Similarly bone graft harvested, through incisions measuring less than 1/4 inch. Patient is usually go home the same day. Through super minimal invasive surgery, many patients after their fusion, can return to work within 2 weeks.
Sacroiliac joint pain is often neglected. We have extensively investigated this, and have participated in national studies and publications on this. We have extensive experience, with super minimal invasive sacroiliac joint arthrodesis. These patients have their preoperative hip and thigh pain and groin pain relieved with the surgical management.

I have over 35 years a spinal experience, having seen everything come and go. I've learned things that do work and do not work. Infection rates, with super minimal invasive surgery, is extremely low, less than 1%. Complication rate is also less because smaller surgical incisions causing less damage to the body aligned for quicker recovery.

As surgery is so minimal invasive, infection rays are exceedingly low, less than 1%, and complication rates are very low. Most surgical procedures take between 1 and 2 hours, with many patients going home the same day. Blood loss is at a minimum, transfusion is not required.
