Dr Fogel of the Spine Pain Be Gone offers an alternative to traditional open back and neck surgeries, motion limiting fusion surgeries and artificial disc replacements by utilizing the latest techniques for pain causing neck and back conditions through minimally invasive endoscopic procedures. The procedures are unique in that most of our surgeries are outpatient day surgeries. Because we utilize minimally invasive techniques with micro-incisions, hospitalization is not required. Our patients walk out of the hospital within hours after their surgery.
