Spine disorders and treatments at Atlantic Neurosurgical & Spine Specialists

Spine disorders and treatments

A spine disorder or injury can have a dramatic impact on a person’s life. From the debilitating pain of a herniated disc to the life-threatening progression of a spinal tumor, Atlantic Neurosurgical & Spine Specialists offers the expertise to diagnose and treat all types of spine conditions. With a conservative approach to every patient, our goal is to provide an effective treatment without performing surgery. If surgery is necessary, we rely on advanced, minimally invasive procedures that utilize endoscopy and image guidance. With incisions that are fractions of the size of traditional spinal surgery incisions, our patients often go home on the same day of surgery and return to a high quality of life faster than patients who undergo more traditional spinal procedures.
