Spine surgery done the “classic” way is traditionally done with an open approach, meaning that the surgical area being operated on is opened with a long incision to allow full view and access to the anatomy by the surgeon. In the past recent years, there have been advances in technology that have allowed spinal conditions to be treated with the minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) approach.Dr. Brusovanik Helps CBS4's Eliott Rodriguez Without Surgery 2

In early stages of degenerative scoliosis, we can make swollen, irritated nerves better with medicines and injections. Using simple x-ray, we can place a single drop of medicine right on the red and inflamed nerve. This can help with the pain going down the leg and back pain as well. Braces and Physical Therapy do help in selected cases of scoliosis as well. When all else fails, one can think about surgery.Dr. Silver, Dermatology Text

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery patient writes:
There are no words to accurate describe the level of care and attention I received from Dr. Brusovanik and his incredible staff at Miami Back & Neck Specialists. No stranger to back pain, I was diagnosed with scoliosis and had my first surgery at the age of 17 (thoracic/lumbar spine fusion with CD-rods), back in the 1980s.

Because I had been suffering from back pain for the last couple of years, following a car accident in 2011, I consulted with and was treated by a few orthopedics and orthopedic surgeons, to no avail. Month after month, my back pain just kept getting worst. It was debilitating and I had little to no quality of life. The doctors assured me my pain was muscular in nature and I should continue with the current treatment plan (epidurals, cortisone shots, pain medication, etc.).

Hoping to find any kind of relief and as fate would have it, I met with Dr. Brusovanik in 2014. He reviewed my medical history and immediately identified that the source of my pain was not only due to the progression of my scoliosis, which had extended to the sacrum, but he was also the only doctor who identified the displacement of one of my CD-rods.

A few months later, despite the traumatic experience from my first scoliosis surgery and all the pain management I had already endured over the last couple of years, I was ready to entrust Dr. Brusovanik and his team with my care because in all of my years I had never met a more empathetic, knowledgeable group of people who were truly dedicated to patient care. We scheduled the surgery, which was projected to take about six hours. The surgery took roughly 11 hours due to the actual condition of my spine, which could not have been foreseen through the study of my films. Dr. Brusovanik and his team were incredibly meticulous and wanted to ensure this would be the last spinal surgery I would need.

Today, I am six months post op and while Dr. Brusovanik said my recovery would take six months to a year, I have to say that immediately following my surgery, my initial pain was gone! I couldn’t believe it! And while I am not fully recovered and have other pains to work through related to the surgery, I remain hopeful as I am moving in the right direction. Finally!

I am forever grateful to Dr. Brusovanik and his team; he took the time to study my condition, consulted with medical teams around the world, developed a plan of action and educated me on my options. It was this level of care that made me feel reassured, hopeful and ready take action. Slowly but surely I am reclaiming my life and it is all because of the care and treatment I received at Miami Back & Neck Specialists/Miami Spine Care!
