      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Anand's Care Philosophy

      Dr. Anand's primary area of research interest involves minimally invasive surgical techniques for spinal disorders and trauma in adults and children, which result in smaller incisions, faster recovery and better patient outcomes. Recently Dr. Anand has pioneered the utilization of three minimally invasive techniques to treat even the most complex of spinal deformity and scoliosis. The Anand Spine Group is also active in the development of new non-fusion, motion preservation techniques including Cervical Artificial Disc Replacements (NeoDisc, PCM, ProDisc), Posterior Non-Fusion Stabilization Systems (Stabilimax NZ, Dynesys, DIAM, Acadia Facet Replacement System ), and Lumbar Artificial Disc Replacements (ProDisc, In Motion).
