The New Era of Spine Surgery

Spine Surgery. Reinvented.

About our Practice

Tomorrow is Here

The treatment of spinal disorders has entered a new era. Techniques are more refined. Incisions are smaller. Procedures that would take hours now take minutes. Recovery that would take months now takes a couple of weeks or even days. And many procedures are being done in the outpatient setting where patients go home the same day. But despite all of our advancements, one thing remains the same: a successful outcome depends on a close relationship between patient and surgeon.

Procedures and Conditions

A Deeper Understanding of Your Spine

The spine is incredibly complex. But so is our understanding of what can go wrong and how to treat it.

Select image below to see conditions and procedures.

Neck Procedures

The Neck


Neck Procedures

The cervical spine— or neck— is responsible for some pretty important functions. It allows movement of the head and acts as a passageway for important nerves that control arm and leg function. The most common conditions in this region of the spine include disc herniation, disc degeneration, and spinal stenosis. Any of these conditions can cause neck and shoulder pain, neck stiffness, numbness or tingling in the arms or fingers, and weakness. We can treat most of the conditions without surgery. In the few conditions that do require surgery, amazing advancements have been made, such as artificial disc replacement and microsurgery.

Middle Back Procedures

The Middle Back


Middle Back Procedures

The thoracic spine— or middle back— is responsible for movement of the torso. It is also a passageway for some important nerves that affect balance and leg function. The most common conditions in this region of the spine include disc degeneration and stenosis. Spinal tumors may also affect this region. Any of these conditions can cause mid back pain, flank pain, bowel or bladder conditions, or difficulty with balance and walking. Fortunately, many of these problems are treated successfully with minimally invasive techniques.

Lower Back Procedures

The Low Back


Lower Back Procedures

The lumbar spine— or low back— is one of the most important regions of the spine. All of the body’s motion and forces are transmitted through this part of the spine. It is the passageway for all the nerves that control leg function and bowel and bladder function. The lumbar spine also allows flexibility and the ability to twist and bend. The most common conditions include disc herniation, disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, tumors, and spinal fractures. Any of these conditions can cause stiffness, pain, numbness or tingling in the legs, difficulty walking or sitting, and even bowel or bladder issues. Nonsurgical and surgical advancements in this region have been staggering. Amazingly, we now treat most of the conditions in the lumbar spine in the outpatient setting using techniques such as artificial disc replacement and microdecompression.

Global Alignment

Global Alignment


Global Alignment

The spine can only function properly when all of its regions— cervical, thoracic, lumbar— are in perfect harmony and alignment. The spinal bones or discs can develop structural conditions that disrupt this harmony and this causes deformity of the spine. Deformity most commonly looks like abnormal curvature of the spine, known as scoliosis, or like “hunching” of the spine, known as kyphosis. Minimally invasive deformity correction, computer-assisted surgery, and image-guided surgery have revolutionized our ability to successfully treat these conditions.

A Stanford honors graduate with extensive training in neurosurgical and orthopedic surgery techniques, he was also the first to describe the genetic response of spinal cord tissue to traumatic injury. His research focuses on developing a cure for paralysis.

Paving the way

The Outpatient Revolution

Surgical and nonsurgical treatment of the spine have come a long way. Techniques have become so small and minimally invasive that hospitalization is often no longer necessary. This means less pain, faster recovery, and a return to the quality of life you demand. This dramatic improvement in treatment is the result of years of research, perfection of technique, and mastery of skill. It’s modern spine surgery. Without the hospital.

Dr. Rasouli says 90% of all patients with back pain don’t need surgery. By trying conservative treatments first, most patients will recover. For the 10% that need surgery, Dr. Rasouli pioneered doing cervical and lumbar artificial disc replacements in an outpatient setting. That means most of his cervical and lumbar disc replacements allow patients to go home the same day as surgery. These are rapid recovery spine surgeries.

Melding Medicine and Technology

“The same things that are required for you to be good with computers make you good at surgery, which is a very logical, focus-driven algorithmic process where one task can’t be completed unless another task before it is completed. At the same time, there’s this art in surgery that’s not scientific or focus driven, but is just art – an expression of something that you can’t quite describe."
