Spare The Muscle

Did you know surgery on the low back can be done through the abdomen not just through the back?

The anterior lumbar interbody fusion or ALIF spares the muscle in the low back. We perform the surgery with a general surgeon. Patients stay in the hospital for 1-2 days and can immediately return to activities of daily living.

Tiger Woods had this procedure done in 2017.
