The Spine Health Institute

The Latest Advances in Spine Surgery

Welcome to the Spine Health Institute, founded by orthopaedic spine surgeon Dr. Kris Okumu. We provide care for all adult and pediatric spine conditions including scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, disc herniations, and fractures. Utilizing computer assisted surgical navigation and the latest advances in spine surgery, we specialize in complex spine surgery, including artificial disc replacement surgery, deformity surgery, kyphoplasty, and other advanced surgical procedures.

Conservative Care, Minimally Invasive Surgery

We perform thorough diagnostics and consider all available options in the treatment of spinal conditions. We see surgery as a last resort and will work with you to find the best non-surgical option available. When surgery is necessary, our highly-specialized medical team employs the latest advances in spine surgery technology. Using minimally invasive techniques, our procedures require small incisions, resulting in faster recovery times – allowing you get your life back quicker than you thought possible.

We make every effort to fully understand our patients’ goals, and also any concerns they may have. Our ultimate priority is to ensure that each person is treated with the highest standard of medical service with their unique needs in mind. In other words, we genuinely care.

CONDITIONS WE TREAT

There are a large variety of conditions that occur in the spine, many of which will seem foreign to those with a new diagnosis. During your office visit we will explain your ailment and give you resources to reinforce the principles discussed. Without a solid diagnosis it is unlikely you will get appropriate treatment. The more you know about the problem, the more you can engage or partner with your surgeon to refine the diagnosis, enhance the treatment and optimize the healing process. For this reason, we have included links below with educational tools to empower our patients. We also recommend use of other websites from reputable academic societies such as the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery (AAOS) or the American Association of Neurosurgery (AANS).
