A GiantStep Forward

Procedures So Advanced, You Can Forget the Hospital.

Precise. Simple. Home.

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.

Technology is Our Driving Force

It's Behind Everything We Do.

The technology that allows us to perform cutting edge procedures without the hassle of hospitalization is simply stunning. Included in the growing list of outpatient procedures is cervical artificial disc replacement, lumbar artificial disc replacement, cervical microdecompression, lumbar microdecompression, the XLIF procedure, the Coflex procedure, and the minimally invasive cervical and lumbar fusions.


Conservative Management

A Cornerstone of Our Philosophy.

Not all spinal problems require surgery. In fact, our initial approach in most cases is nonoperative intervention. This includes some of the latest techniques in interventional pain management such as facet blocks, selective nerve root blocks, epidural injections, stem cell injections, and platelet rich plasma injections. These techniques are designed to provide immediate relief and in some cases may be all that you need to restore your quality of life.

We’re Not Just Changing Surgery. We’re Changing Lives.

Innovation. Knowledge. Attention to Detail. Compassion. These are our Core Values. They mean that we are constantly perfecting the latest technologies to better serve our patients. Our current focus is in the fascinating fields of Augmented-Reality Surgery and Robotic Surgery. As spinal procedures move more and more into the outpatient setting, these technologies will have tremendous impact on the precision and effectiveness of our techniques. Technology at the Cutting Edge, all part of the Outpatient Revolution.

Range of Motion: Cervical Arthroplasty Compared to Cervical Fusion

The Prestige LP Cervical Disc on the left is an artificial cervical disc and is designed to maintain motion at the treated levels in the cervical spine. The treated levels maintain motion after the disc is implanted.

Dr. Rasouli on Meet the Doctors Podcast

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."

90% of Back ProblemsDon’t Need Surgery!

“Time and time again, we see the statistic prove itself that 90% of all back problems resolve themselves and don’t need surgery. The body does a better job than a surgeon ever could do. That’s true for back pain; it’s true for sciatica; it’s true for disk herniations; and it’s even true for spinal fractures. It’s humbling for a surgeon to say, but it is true.”

Spine Surgery.Reinvented.

“The story is an all too familiar one. A patient will undergo fusion surgery for collapsed discs either in the neck or the back. It involves placing a bone spacer between the vertebra or spinal bones and then holding them there with metal plates, screws, or rods. Eventually the two bones “fuse” together. Patients feel fine for some time. But then… the pain comes back. What has happened is that now the disc above or below the fusion has collapsed, from all the extra stress the original fusion has created. More surgery.”
