Minimally invasive spine surgery is a concept that can be applied to surgery of the neck, upper back or lumbar spine. Surgeons, like Dr. DAgostino, who utilize this process, employ the latest technologies throughout the surgical process to minimize bleeding, tissue retraction, and post-op scarring. This results in surgeries that can be done same day without an overnight stay. For other surgeries, it means a less than 24 hour overnight stay. By following these principles, the patient is able to recover more quickly and reap the rewards of a successful, sometimes pain-less, recovery.
Dr. Sabino DAgostino is a board certified Neurosurgeon practicing in Charleston, SC. He specializes in the treatment of painful spinal conditions such as neck and back pain. These conditions can produce numbness, tingling and even pain in the arms or legs. His affinity for spinal technology allows him to utilize some of the newest and safest therapies available. The goal of every visit is to identify the least invasive therapy that will successfully treat his patients’ condition.
