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

PATIENT TESTIMONIAL

Dear Dr. Brusovanik and Staff,

In today’s world, receiving quality medical care is hard to come by and can be a very frustrating search, at best. Finding Dr. Brusovanik, who specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery, was a restoration of my faith in the medical community! His knowledge and professionalism is only surpassed by his personal interest, care and unique insight into his patient’s physical and mental challenges. He is an extremely proactive practitioner of the medical arts and his body of work, testimonialized by his peers and patients, is indicative of the care you also will receive. To make matters better, Dr. Brusovanik has surrounded himself with an amazing staff that are a true reflection of his positive vision. I’m a 33 year old, healthy, active male. Over the last couple of years I was experiencing chronic back and sciatic nerve pain due to a herniated disc in my lower back. The pain was excruciating and would not subside since my nerve was essentially pinched. Dr. Brusovanik explained to me in great detail all of my options and we agreed on a course of action to take in regards to my specific situation. Ultimately, I moved forward with surgery in December of 2013. I was never once concerned about my well being as I knew I was in great hands. Dr. Brusovanik treated me as if he were treating his brother or close family member. He followed up with me numerous times after my procedure and I also was able to contact him personally if I ever needed anything or in case of an emergency. Having that option was a very comforting feeling for me. The results speak for themselves – I followed his post-op instructions and was back to walking a few days after surgery. Fast-forward 7 months and I’m back to feeling almost 100% – working out and back to leading an active lifestyle. Each day when I wake up, I have Dr. Brusovanik to thank for being able to go about my daily routine in a normal fashion once again. Without a doubt, I would recommend Dr. Brusovanik to anyone who is experiencing issues with their back and/or neck.

LUMBAR TOTAL DISC REPLACEMENT

Lumbar total disc replacement is an alternative to lumbar fusion surgery. Fusion is an important tool for instability of deformity; however, a more common cause of back pain is disc degeneration. In which case fusion is too aggressive. For those patients who have back pain, which is felt down into their exterminates, motion preservation with a disc replacement allows an earlier return to work and higher patient satisfaction. Also, by implementing a motion segment with a fusion surgery, stressors are transmitted to the spinal segments. This adjacent level problem is minimized with a disc replacement. For younger patients with back pain and disc degeneration, lumbar disc replacement is now the preferred method. Lumbar total disc replacement is a good testament of time and backing of research.

Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement (PCM)(Caution: Investigational Device) A goal of this procedure is to relieve the pain caused by pinched nerves due to a damaged disc in the cervical spine. The diseased or damaged disc will be replaced with a specialized implant.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)This noninvasive medical imaging technique uses a powerful magnetic field to create a detailed three-dimensional view of the inside of the body. The images it produces are similar to those generated by a Computed Tomography CT scan, but MRI images provide a much clearer view of soft tissues. This makes MRI a valuable diagnostic tool for the visualization of cancer, infection, internal bleeding and soft tissue trauma.
