Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spine Surgery
Dr. Rappard’s Los Angeles Minimally Invasive Spine Institute performs state of the art spine surgery designed to make your back pain, neck pain or sciatica go away faster. We only perform back surgery and neck surgery that is ultra-minimally invasive. We use sophisticated high resolution cameras placed through natural openings in the spine, miniaturized surgical instruments and a spine laser, all inserted through a tiny skin incision. Our minimally invasive spine surgery is done without cutting or disrupting normal muscles, ligaments or bone. As a result, your recovery is much quicker. After your surgery your body can concentrate on healing from your condition, not healing from the traumatic effects of surgery. Whether it’s for state of the art sciatica treatment, back pain or neck pain, the institute has specialized techniques that can get you better faster.
