Areas of Clinical Practice:

 Spine: Application of combined pain-management and surgical protocols, utilizing anatomic, image-based classification of spinal motion-segment disease, and diagnostic injections. Procedures are:
  • Least Invasive Spine Surgery: Endoscopically-assisted lumbar decompression, fusion and instrumentations (LINDIF);
  • Minimally invasive deformity surgery – thoracic/lumbar;
  • Endoscopic decompressions:
    • Lumbar:
      • transforaminal: uniportal, unilateral biportal;
      • Interlaminar – uniportal and biportal;
      • Foramino-laminoplasty;
      • Trans-iliac approach to L5-S1 disc and foramen.
  • Thoracic:
    • Endoscopic posterolateral discectomy and interbody fusion:
      • Uniportal;
      • Bi-portal
  • Cervical:
    • Anterior;
    • Posterior – interlaminar.
o   Minimally invasive dynamic stabilization of lumbar spine

o   Minimally invasive sacroiliac fusion and instrumentation

o   Lumbar and cervical disc arthroplasty

o   Open decompressions, fusion and instrumentation (anterior, posterior) – lumbar, thoracic and cervical;
o   Complex revisions:
  • Lumbar – minimally invasive revision;
  • Cervical.
o   Surgical management of spinal tumor;
o   Surgical management of spinal fractures;
o   Augmentation of osteoporotic vertebral fractures – kyphoplasty/vertebroplasty
o   Diagnostic/therapeutic injections – facet block, nerve block, discography –lumbar, thoracic, cervical.

Areas of Research Interest:

  • Development of the least invasive spine surgery approaches, including but not limited to decompression, fusion and arthroplasty in the lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine.
  • Development of least invasive spinal implants including biologic interbody devices, biologic interlaminar device, vertebral reconstruction, annular and nuclear replacements and facet athroplasty.
  • Development of artificial bone
  • Development of biologic fixation devices for long bone fractures
  • Least invasive, biologic peripheral joint arthroplasty
  • Creation of endoscopic interstitial operating space.

Inventions:
  • Uni-directional Dynamic Spinal Fixation Device - US Patent # 6,932,820 B2 (The Ant-Cer cervical plate, by Zimmer/Abbot Spine is based on this concept).
  • Method for post-operatively compressing a bone graft – US Patent # 7,645,295 B2)
  • Biologic Intramedullary Fixation Device and Methods of Use – US Patent # 7,947,042 B2
  • Biologic Vertebral Reconstruction - US Patent # 8,292,961
  • Transpedicular, extrapedicular and transcorporeal partial disc replacement = US 8,540,772 B2
  • Biologic Artificial Bone - US 20090157181 A1
  • Biologic Diarthrodial Joint – US Patent # 8,636,806
  • Intervertebral Disc Reamer – US Patent # 8,702,709
