Spine Centers of America Opening Advanced Spine Surgery Center for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery in NJ

Center Offers Innovative Endoscopic Spine Surgery for Faster Recovery, Improved Success Rates

UNION, NJ--(Marketwire - October 29, 2010) -  Considering that more than 80 percent of Americans will suffer from back pain at some point in their life, it isn't surprising that Spine Centers of America is opening its second endoscopic spine surgery center in the New Jersey area in early November.

Advanced Spine Surgery Center, at 855 Lehigh Ave, Union, NJ, is a state-of-the-art facility that has been developed under the leadership of Bryan J. Massoud, M.D., a board certified, Fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon. Dr. Massoud founded the New Jersey Back Institute and Spine Centers of America, which currently operates one other spine surgery center in New Jersey. Specializing in minimally invasive endoscopic laser spine surgery, diagnostic, and pain management procedures, Advanced Spine Surgery Center is an ambulatory surgery center that relieves patient neck and back pain when other treatments have failed. 

Key advantages of new endoscopic laser spine surgery over traditional open spine surgery include:

  • Less trauma to body
  • Reduced post-operative pain
  • Less scarring and smaller scars
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Improved post-surgical function and mobility
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Reduction/elimination of time under general anesthesia

Advanced Spine Surgery Center has three Class C operating suites featuring the latest equipment and endoscopic spine surgery technologies. The operating suites, pre-op and post-op areas, occupying 10,000 sq. ft., will be staffed with board certified orthopedic spine surgeons, anesthesiologists, pain management physicians and nursing staff to provide outpatient care. The facility includes numerous medical offices for affiliated medical professionals.

The Grand Opening event for healthcare professionals will take place on November 16 with private previews available in advance by appointment. Healthcare professionals interested in attending should call 1.877.722.6008.

Spine Centers of America offers the advantage of numerous advanced endoscopic spine surgery techniques developed by Dr. Massoud and his associates that will be performed at the Advanced Spine Surgery Center. These procedures include:

  • Anterior cervical endoscopic foraminotomy for treating bone spurs and foraminal stenosis
  • Epiduragram-guided endoscopic discectomy to further enhance safety of discectomy procedures;
  • The "between" technique in transforaminal endoscopic lumbar procedures for disc herniations.

Endoscopic laser spine surgery techniques that are employed by Advanced Spine Surgery Center use "twilight" or local anesthesia, which allows patients to remain alert during surgery and usually walk out of surgery under their own power. Dr. Massoud has personally performed more than 1000 endoscopic spine surgeries with a high success rate, enabling patients with debilitating spinal pain to get "back to life" free of pain. 

Spine Centers of America surgeons at Advanced Spine Surgery Center will treat spine conditions including: bone spurs; bulging disc, disc degeneration; disc tear; facet joint disease; failed back and neck surgery; foraminal stenosis; herniated disc; pinched nerve; radiculitis; radiculopathy; sciatica; spinal stenosis and spondylolisthesis. SCA's surgeons have extensive experience performing the endoscopic spine procedures to diagnose or treat these conditions.

Because Spine Centers of America offers highly successful endoscopic techniques not yet available elsewhere, the new center, located minutes from Newark Airport, is expected to draw patients from across the country. Spine Centers of America hosts monthly seminars to educate the public about spinal conditions and advanced options for spinal pain relief via minimally invasive spine surgery techniques. For more information call 201.870.3030 or visit www.SpineCentersOfAmerica.com.
