Fixing back pain doesn't need to look like a trip to the hardware store.

Over 300,000 spinal fusions are performed each year. Many of those can be avoided.

Spinal Fusions are Over-Performed.

Spinal fusions are frequently recommended for a variety of spinal conditions, including spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and fractures among others. Fusions have been a standard treatment for many years and are often presented as the only treatment for these conditions. However, fusions are heavily over-performed and can further compromise spinal anatomy, leading to ongoing pain and the need for additional surgeries.

You Can be Pain-Free Without a Fusion.

At Biscup Spine half of all new patients ask to see Dr. Biscup after being told a spinal fusion is their only option. In 90–95% of those cases, Dr. Biscup is able to effectively address the condition at its root cause and relieve pain through a micro-surgery, with no fusion or hardware, operating through an incision the size of a thumbnail.

Dr. Biscup achieves extraordinary outcomes through his minimally invasive procedures, in which he clears abnormal tissue from the spinal canal to relieve pressure on spinal nerves and then reshapes the canal to provide ample room for the spinal cord and nerves.
