Newest Technological Advancements in Spine & Brain Treatments
Our board-certified physicians at our Commack location utilize the most advanced treatment therapies including ultrasonic bone emulsification technology, transcollation technology and other minimally invasive surgery techniques to help limit blood loss, shorten or eliminate hospital stays, and reduce overall recovery time for brain and spine procedures.
Our neurosurgeons maximize their expertise and experience in finding the least invasive surgical technique that will serve you the most. This could be endovascular neurosurgery involving a very narrow, flexible tube that is threaded through the vascular system to diagnosis or treat disorders of the brain or spine. Stereotactic radiosurgery (CyberKnife®, Novalis Tx™, and Gamma Knife®) employs super-focused radiation and offesr a type of surgery without incisions.
