Spine surgery is a specialty at SONSA. Our neurosurgeons believe in extensive diagnostic evaluation and utilize the most advanced diagnostic technology available. A thorough understanding of each patient’s condition allows us to recommend the most effective treatment options using the least invasive techniques, thus minimizing risks and improving recovery time and patient outcomes.
Our team works in close collaboration with pain medicine physicians and physical therapists to develop treatment plans for each patient’s individual needs.
While most people think neurosurgery focuses only on conditions associated with the brain, over 70 percent of neurosurgery procedures involve spine and spinal cord health conditions. Neurosurgeons have the advanced training to understand the intricate relationship between the spine and the complex network of nerves that make up the spinal cord. Understanding this interrelationship between the structural aspects of the spine and the nervous system allows the neurosurgeon to fine-tune a patient’s diagnosis, develop the most appropriate and least invasive treatment option, and perform complex surgeries involving the spine and spinal cord.
SONSA specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery and offers the only fellowship-trained spinal neurosurgeons in Southern Oregon.
