Dr. Hansraj's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hansraj "Kenneth K. Hansraj, M.D. Chief of Spine Surgery, is a premier spinal surgeon operating in the United States. He is a spinal and orthopedic surgeon specializing in cervical, thoracic and lumbar procedures for example laminectomies and spinal fusions. Dr. Ken believes in whole body wellness, preventative care and that the spine is a principal indicator of general health impacted by "human software and hardware."

Cervical = Neck Pain. Dr. Kenneth Hansraj specializes in cervical = neck procedures which can relieve spinal cord or root pressure to alleviate corresponding neck and arm pain. Spinal stenosis and herniated discs are common problems showing weakness and numbness. Typically, he may perform ACDF (anterior cervical discectomy & fusion), decompressions and stem cell enhancements with the Harvest BMAC. He takes all precautions to perform safe spine surgery. Thoracic = Mid-Back Pain. Dr. Kenneth Hansraj specializes in the surgical management of thoracic spine disorders such as spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, herniated discs, spinal tumors, spinal tumors, or infections. These problems may cause pain that radiates around the chest, abdomen or groin. Anterior or posterior spinal surgery may be a treatment. Osteoporosis may present with spinal compression fractures. Bracing and physical therapy may help some cases. Others may require kyphoplasty surgery. Lumbar = Back Pain / Sciatica.
