Thank you for giving me my life back. It is an amazing gift to be an active participant in your own life--in every facet of it.
Minimally invasive treatment was developed to treat a wide variety of spinal disorders with the least amount of trauma to the surrounding tissues. The benefits for the patient include decreased blood loss, much shorter recovery times and reduced pain during surgery. These lead to an overall better quality of life.
Our minimally invasive spine treatments utilize a small endoscope with a camera attached to its end. The endoscope is inserted into the patient’s body through a tiny incision made on the skin. The camera is used to view the affected area, giving the surgeon access to the internal parts of the body.
During surgery, an imaging device called a fluoroscope is used to view the affected area on a screen. The surgeon then uses specially designed surgical tools to move tissues and muscles away from the spinal area and gain access to the affected area. Because tissues and muscles are only moved and not cut, trauma, pain and bleeding are all considerably reduced.
Faster Recovery Times
Our team of spinal specialists will carefully assess your health condition to determine whether minimal laser spine surgery is the right treatment for you. At NJSO, our doctors always start with conservative treatment options before we recommend surgery. If conservative treatment plans don’t work, then we use minimally invasive spine surgery to ease your pain and help you get back to the life you once enjoyed.
If you suffer from chronic spine, back or neck pain, our outpatient spinal procedures may be the perfect solution for you.

“The people that work at NJ Spine and Orthopedic are the best! Dr. Katzman did my back surgery one year ago. I had severe sciatic pain that went from above my hip to the bottom of my foot. After surgery my pain was totally gone. Literally overnight. And I only had to take one day off work!”

“I have had my neck surgery with Dr. Scott Katzman. I have found Dr. Katzman to be a skilled and outstanding surgeon. He is the Doctor that I found that helped me when others could not. My neck is far better today than it was before surgery and I am so far happy with the results…”
