Dr Szabo treats the spectrum of neck, back and hip conditions. His goal is your best functional recovery, through the least invasive intervention. He will provide you with a clear treatment plan, which often does not involve surgery. He has extensive experience providing second opinions and can be a trusted source for you before deciding on having surgery.
In cases where surgery is necessary, Dr. Szabo delivers proven procedures using latest techniques and innovations in spine surgery. Depending on the patient’s condition, Dr. Szabo performs spinal surgery using traditional techniques or using the latest, cutting edge surgical technologies. These include minimally invasive, microscope-assisted cervical and lumbar discectomy, decompression and fusion, disc replacement, microsurgical lumbar laminotomy and kyphoplasty. For certain types of spinal problems, these surgical techniques can eliminate the need for spinal fusion. Minimally invasive surgery results in less pain, trauma and scarring, and a more functional recovery.
