Surgery

Non Operative Care

The surgeons at the New Jersey Spine Center have more than 25 years of experience in handling and treating complex spine problems. While trained for highly technical operations, the physician team’s goal is to do everything possible for a patient to avoid surgery. If surgical care is required, the NJ Spine Center is equipped with the most cutting-edge technology to offer the latest in surgical procedures (including micro and endoscopic) available today.

Those electing surgery should know that the physicians at the NJ Spine Center are trained in state-of-the-art techniques, including bloodless surgeries, which do not require a blood transfusion, and microsurgeries that are minimally invasive and use a high powered operating microscope that allows surgeons to be more precise.

Surgeons from the NJ Spine Center perform artificial disc replacement, spinal fusion and scoliosis treatment. Details of the procedures, as well as the indications for them and the risks involved, are always discussed thoroughly. With staff privileges at strong regional hospitals — Overlook Medical Center in Summit, Morristown Medical Center in Morristown, and St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston — the physicians know that patients are confident going into surgery.

Bloodless Surgery

New, special techniques now permit patients to undergo most major spinal procedures without the need for a blood transfusion. Patients with religious restrictions, such as Jehovah’s Witnesses, can now safely undergo procedures that were previously unavailable.
