While Summit’s spine team emphasizes a preventative and conservative approach to spine care, there are some conditions that are best treated by surgery. When surgery is appropriate, we offer fellowship-trained surgeons with national and international expertise in the safest and most advanced surgical techniques available.
Our surgeons have introduced groundbreaking surgical techniques to Minnesota and are highly skilled in disc replacement and minimally invasive techniques that reduce postsurgical pain, shorten your recovery time, and provide the best possible surgical outcome.
Choosing the best surgery for you
Frequently, there is more than one surgical approach available to treat a particular condition. We sit down with you to explain all of the surgical options and the pros and cons of each approach. It is our job to help you make an informed decision about the surgical approach that is best for you.
