Orthopedic spine surgery treats medical conditions of the spine (part of the musculoskeletal system) where nonsurgical, conservative treatment methods to alleviate pain or eliminate the spine condition have failed.
When orthopedic surgery is required, surgeons at NJ Spine & Orthopedic select the least invasive surgical procedure possible given the situation that will successfully treat the patient’s medical condition. The NJSO team offers a 98% surgical success rate.

The majority of the surgical procedures performed by the surgeons at NJ Spine and Orthopedics are done using a minimally invasive technique and specialized technology. Advanced tools such as endoscopes (tiny cameras with a light mounted on a thin tube), computer screens and high-definition monitors gives today’s surgeon a view of the surgery area in microscopic detail.
Advanced instrumentation makes surgeries through tiny incisions possible and ensures faster recovery. Minimally invasive typically describes surgical procedures using small incisions of less than 1.5cm (about half an inch).
