Dr. Joshua Rovner is a nationally-recognized spinal surgeon who offers his patients the latest advances in minimally invasive spine surgery. He is the first spine surgeon to implant the HEDRON IA, a 3D integrated ALIF (anterior lumbar fusion bone graft) spacer, as reported in OrthoSpine News. This device allows for less invasive spinal fusion surgery with a 3D printed spacer, or “vertebral fixation device.” This technology makes the surgical treatment of low back pain a reliable option.
What is the procedure?
Lumbar spinal fusion may be recommended to treat various spine conditions. The procedure involves placing an incision in the area to access the damaged vertebrae.
Dr. Rovner offers minimally invasive spine surgery, with smaller incisions, minimize scarring, lower risk of infections, and a faster recovery period.
The HEDRON IA provides the benefit of requiring smaller incisions and reduced exposure to potential complications. This approach to spine surgery reduces the risk of damage to the surrounding muscles and tissues.
