Robotic Spinal Surgery 

Robotic Spinal Surgery Robotic spinal surgery is a minimally invasive treatment designed to increase the safety and add the precision in all categories of surgeries.

Robotic spinal surgery also reduces exposure to radiation, pain after operation, risks of complication and recovery period.

Dr. Rovner, has a vast experience in robotic spinal surgery being the first to perform the procedure in New Jersey. The following are the advantages of this treatment:
  • Reduces the risk of nerve damage.
  • It is a fast surgery process with less risks of complication.
  • It enhances accuracy for placement of screws.
  • It minimizes exposure to radiation.

Nevertheless, Dr. Rovner offers this option at Progressive Spine & Orthopaedics and has also performed robotic spine surgery operations in New Jersey at the Hackensack University (one of the top spine centers in New Jersey with outstanding success rates.

Laser Spine Surgery

This is a modest back surgery applying a laser to burn tissue instead of using the regular tools that cut tissue. Before getting a laser spine surgery, a patient should be examined by an independent professional from the one to perform the surgery.

Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion

This is a surgery applied to treat a disc herniation around the neck if surgical free treatments have failed. The surgery involves removing all or part of the herniated disc in the neck of the patient. Then the vertebral bones around the removed disc are surgically joined. Dr. Ronver reaches the disc through the neck instead of from the back.
