Welcome to the Los Angeles Minimally Invasive Spine Institute
The LAMIS Institute is grounded on the principles of effective treatment of all forms of spine pain, including neck pain, back pain and sciatica using the most effective and least invasive procedures available to medicine. Our ultra-minimally invasive approach means a faster recovery for patients after back surgery and neck surgery.
The Institute was founded by George Rappard, MD, a Los Angeles pioneer in minimally invasive brain surgery, minimally invasive spine surgery and neurospine research. Dr. Rappard is a Neurointerventional Surgeon with extensive specialized training in Endoscopic Spine Surgery, Laser spine techniques and other minimally invasive procedures.
