Neurological Spine Disorders

Surgical Spine Treatments

Jon Park, MD, a Stanford Spine neurosurgeon

Our Stanford Spine experts provide a complete range of spinal surgery services to treat diseases of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, ranging from the very traditional to the state-of-the-art.

Spinal surgery is a very exciting field where new developments and technology are improving both patient outcomes and satisfaction. Many of the older procedures can now be done with minimally invasive approaches assisted with endoscopes, laser techniques and/or computer-guided imaging, developed here at Stanford.

Stanford Spine neurosurgeons and other specialists work together to determine which treatment option will be best for you. Patients receive these procedures on an outpatient basis or with a brief hospital stay. In either situation, minimally invasive surgery reduces postsurgical pain and promotes faster recovery.
