Denver Spine Surgeons is a group practice composed of three board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeons. Our philosophy emphasizes exhausting non-surgical treatment options before considering spine surgery. When surgery is necessary, they utilize the latest technological advances in minimally invasive spine.
Dr. David Wong, Dr. Sanjay Jatana and Dr. Gary Ghiselli have practiced together in Denver as colleagues for about 10 years and have over 60 years combined performing spine surgery!
Unlike spinal fusion which locks vertebrae in place, artificial disc replacement enables the surgeon to restore movement to the spine by replacing a damaged disc with an implant that retains the ability to rotate. This can prevent other complications related to a fusion surgery.
The spine physicians at Denver Spine Surgeons share the same philosophy in that they emphasize nonsurgical treatment options in advance of spine surgery. Non-surgical treatment options are now provided through pain management specialists and spine therapists.
Do you need back surgery or neck surgery? For those back and neck pain sufferers who have exhausted nonsurgical treatment options, spine surgery may be the fastest way back to activity. Getting a 2nd opinion will ensure that you are getting the right surgery for you.
