Leading An Industry
In November of 2014, Dr. Hansraj performed a study on the impact of good posture and pressure to the neck. Dr. Hansraj found that when the head is straight up in good posture, it weighs 10 pounds. However, when the angle of the head tilts 60 degrees forward, as it does while texting, the head weighs 60 lbs. Dr. Hansraj’s study was received by a global community and reached more than 5 billion people according to Cision®, a service used to monitor media coverage and impressions.
Your Pain. Our Solutions.We Go Beyond Surgery
Cervical • Neck Pain
We specialize in cervical = neck procedures which can relieve spinal cord or root pressure to alleviate corresponding neck and arm pain. Spinal stenosis and herniated discs are common problems showing weakness and numbness. Typically, we may perform ACDF (anterior cervical discectomy & fusion), decompressions and stem cell enhancements with the Harvest BMAC. We take all precautions to perform safe spine surgery.
Thoracic • Mid Back Pain
We specialize in the surgical management of thoracic spine disorders such as spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, herniated discs, spinal tumors, spinal tumors, or infections. These problems may cause pain that radiates around the chest, abdomen or groin. Anterior or posterior spinal surgery may be a treatment. Osteoporosis may present with spinal compression fractures. Bracing and physical therapy may help some cases. Others may require kyphoplasty surgery.
Lumbar • Back Pain / Sciatica
We specialize in the surgical management of lumbar spine disorders (back pain) such as spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, spondylolysis, herniated discs, spinal tumors, spinal instability, or infections. We perform re-do or revision surgeries and offer a second surgical opinion. Sciatica is sciatic pain from the sciatic nerve that radiates from the back to the legs. Typically we may perform lumbar disc microsurgery for limited disc herniations. In more complicated cases a decompression may be carried out to open up nerve pathways, and sometimes with a spinal fusion to stabilize segments.
