A Greeting from Mark R. Grubb, MD
Hello, and welcome to the Northeast Ohio Spine Center’s website. If you are experiencing back pain or spinal issues, you have come to the right place.
I was in Medical School when the new and revolutionary minimally invasive spine surgery techniques were being pioneered. Intrigued by the possibility and promise of MISS for improving the lives of my patients, I threw myself into my studies to learn absolutely everything I could about it. One might say I “got in on the ground floor.”
Since then, I have helped over 5,000 individuals find relief from their back pain through minimally invasive techniques. Seeing my patients recover from their spinal issues and “get their lives back” is one of my greatest joys in life, and something I strive to make happen every day.
I encourage you to learn all that you can here our website about your condition and how we may be able to help. And please do not hesitate to contact us – we are here for you.
This minimally-invasive procedure is performed through a tubular device. It is designed to relieve pain caused by herniated discs pressing on nerve roots. This surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis, which allows the patient to leave the hospital the same day.
Minimally-Invasive Lumbar Microdecompression
This minimally invasive procedure is used to remove overgrown vertebral bone and soft tissue to relieve the compression of nerve roots in the lumbar spine. It is performed through a small incision on the back.
Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement (PCM)
A goal of this procedure is to relieve the pain caused by pinched nerves due to a damaged disc in the cervical spine. The diseased or damaged disc will be replaced with a specialized implant.
