Conservative, compassionate, ultra-minimally invasive spine care to help you get back on your feet
Most spine conditions never need surgery. Many conditions like herniated/slipped discs or sciatica will improve with conservative care and time. Dr. Son is committed to conservative care and helping patient's heal naturally. When they don't however surgery can often times help.
The vast majority of problems of the neck, upper back and lumbar spine can be treated with highly minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Son uses techniques and technology such as robotics, navigation and namely, endoscopy, to provide such minimally invasive options.
Endoscopic spine surgery uses a camera inserted through tiny incisions, to operate deep on the spine and perform surgeries like laminectomies or diskectomies or fusions. Dr. Son was the first in San Antonio and south Texas to bring dual portal endoscopic spine surgery to patients.These minimally invasive techniques can greatly speed up the recovery process after spine surgery.
Endoscopic spine surgery often times means no hospital stay and a recovery over days to weeks instead of months.
