Minimally Invasive Orthopedic Spine Surgery | Male

Dr. Michael Rohan Jr, DO
Medicine is becoming increasingly specialized — all for the benefit of the patient. Recognizing that back and neck pain requires a specialized spine center approach, Dr. Michael Rohan Jr., launched Panama City Spine. The goal of Panama City Spine is to improve the care of back and neck pain for back and neck pain sufferers in western Florida and the gulf coast region of Southern Alabama and Southwest Georgia. Panama City Spine features the expertise of Dr. Rohan, a board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon who is fellowship-trained in spine. "We emphasize non-surgical treatment options where possible, including therapy and spinal injections," Dr. Rohan explains. "However sometimes symptoms can progress to radiating pain into an arm or leg. Other red flag symptoms include numbness or weakness in a leg or arm. If this type of neurological deficit is not treated promptly, these symptoms can become permanent." Dr. Rohan notes that the spine center uses the newest minimally invasive spine surgery techniques and instrumentation. "While this can involve more training to operate through a half- inch incision rather than an open 3-inch incision, the benefits are huge for the patient," Dr. Rohan explains. "A tiny incision means less disruption to muscles and ligaments and a quicker, less painful recovery. Consequently, most patients can have their spine surgery in the morning and be home later the same day to recover in the comfort of their own home. Also less blood loss eliminates the risk of having to use blood from a blood bank."

    I'm so grateful for Dr Rohan. He gives you ample opportunity to express your concerns and then gives his expert opinion, filling in gaps that you may not understand. The office staff took care of everything and Dr Rohans surgery totally relived my debilitating pain. He's the best.

    I was in serious pain prior to working with Dr. Rohan. After surgery, I couldn't be happier. Its been almost one year since the surgery and I feel great. No issues with my back and neck. Prior to the surgery I was in a vast amount of pain. Now, through the grace of God and Dr. Rohan, I am good.

    Dr. Rohan Jr says...

    At some point in their lives, 80% of Americans will have an attack of back pain or neck pain. Worse, once you have your first back pain attack, you are four times more likely to have a recurrence. That's the bad news.

    The good news is that in the vast majority of cases, back pain or neck pain symptoms will go away on their own in a week or so. Other times, when the pain symptoms persist for longer than a week, most of these cases will also improve with some customized stretches that restore movement to inflamed ligaments and muscles, anti-inflammatories or spinal injections that relieve pain long enough to get moving again.

    Common acute back pain symptoms that do not involve nerve damage (numbness, weakness or pain in an arm or leg) may respond to non-surgical treatment options. Consequently, the best spine care exhausts non-surgical treatment options for back and neck pain before spine surgery is considered.

    Dr. Rohan notes that the spine center uses the newest minimally invasive spine surgery techniques and instrumentation. While this can involve more training to operate through a half-inch incision rather than an open 3-inch long incision, the benefits are huge for the patient, Dr. Rohan explains. A tiny incision means less disruption to muscles and ligaments and a quicker, less painful recovery. Consequently, most patients can have their spine surgery in the morning and be home later the same day to recover in the comfort of their own home. Also less blood loss eliminates the risk of having to use blood from a blook bank.We recognized that for those in the gulf coast region, there is a need for a spine program that uses the newest minimally invasive instrumentation, explains Dr. Rohan. The savvy patient should look for this expertise. In the past, they had to drive 300 miles. Now it is close to where they live.
