Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery


A Good Housekeeping article reports that, “Of the 56 million Americans who have back pain, only 5 percent need surgery.” (

At New Era Spine, Dr. Payam Moazzaz is dedicated to finding and practicing noninvasive alternatives to conventional back surgery; treatments and therapies that may involve less pain, less pressure, and more of a positive therapeutic outcome for the back pain patient.

Drawing upon a decade’s worth of experience in the field of orthopedic medicine, Dr. Moazzaz can offer the back pain patient any number of viable and effective alternatives to traditional orthopedic surgery; alternatives that could include physical therapy, injections, spine stimulator implants and spinal decompression devices, etc.

According to Spine-Health.Com, a non-invasive procedure is a back pain treatment that “does not require incision into the body or the removal of tissue. For the treatment of back pain, a combination of non-invasive procedures such as chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, and heat therapy are typically prescribed for several weeks.” (

In many cases, a doctor does not have to pick up a scalpel in order to treat or even to resolve a patient’s back pain condition. And Dr. Payam Moazzaz is devoted to exploring any number of physical therapies, medications, massages, extended rest periods, injections, and hot and cold therapies to arrive at this solution.

And in the rare instance that surgery is required, Dr. Moazzaz is committed to delivering the very best in minimally invasive surgical care. He specializes in robotic spine surgery, along with other procedures that can be performed with the aid of smaller incisions and minimal pain and invasiveness.

At New Era Spine, Dr. Payam Moazzaz is committed to helping each patient come to a successful resolution to their spinal pain issues; and in a manner that maintains at all times the comfort, happiness and dignity of the patient.
