Dr. Andrew M. Casden, M.D. offers a patient experience that is unique in today’s medical environment. We provide the personalized attention you need, both psychologically and physically, to help expedite the healing process. Dr. Casden is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in degenerative diseases of the spine and spinal deformity such as scoliosis. When surgery is needed our Manhattan orthopedic surgeon will provide you with the option of minimally invasive spine surgery. Traditional spine surgery is involved in making a large incision up and down the middle of the back, and retracting the back muscles to access the spine. Our Manhattan orthopedic surgery facility practices minimally invasive spine surgery. This allows the surgeon to make smaller incisions in the skin and avoid large muscle retraction. Special surgical instruments are inserted through these tubes and used to perform the surgery procedure.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Minimally invasive spine surgery generally results in the same surgical outcome as with more traditional techniques. However, there are a number of advantages to minimally invasive spinal surgery such as reduced operative times, surgical incisions are less painful and recovery is faster with less post operative pain. Our top Manhattan spinal surgeon has experience in treating all areas of the spine, including cervical, thoracic and lumbar problems. If you experience any back pain, neck pain, weakness in your limbs or numbness, you may require treatment. Our Manhattan facility offers state-of-the-art comprehensive care of musculoskeletal conditions. Please call our office or visit our website for more information about our spinal surgery practice.
