Lumbar Disc Surgery

Lumbar disc surgery is most common for treating sciatic-type pain caused by a herniated disc and is often performed as an outpatient procedure.

Endoscopic Disc Surgery

Herniated and degenerative discs can often be treated with minimal invasiveness. Typically, the incision requires no more than a Band-Aid.

Lumbar Fusion

When the lumbar spine is unstable in the case of trauma or severe degeneration, we use state-of-the-art technology to help you recover quickly.

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion

The most traditional way to treat cervical disc herniations, the disc is removed and replaced by a bone plug or cage and secured with a plate.

Cervical Disc Replacement

A newer approach to treating a disc herniation in the neck, a mobile bearing implant is put in place of the removed disc, allowing complete motion of the neck after surgery.

Lumbar Disc Replacement

The lumbar artificial disc is a method of maintaining motion for degenerative spine problems and is an alternative to fusion.

“Dr. Cole was the first provider I called. He helped in so many ways, and when it came down to needing cervical surgery, I had full confidence in him and his team.

To this day, as someone who works in radiology, I will always refer him. When I have patients in so much pain that I can relate to, I share my success story and refer to Dr. Cole as a provider. I have confidence that he will help so many others, the way he has helped me!

Thank you to Dr. Cole, Megan, Janine, and Danielle for all that you have helped me with! You are the definition of what a provider office should be!!”

“Dr. Cole was recommended to me by my chiropractor. Dr. Cole’s receptionist was pleasant and very easy to schedule with. I had an appointment in the same week that I initially called! She talked me through the process of using out-of-network benefits and setting up my online profile. The receptionist and medical nurse/assistant were very pleasant and helpful. Dr. Cole was very thorough and explained how the L5 compression fracture of unknown origin is indicative of osteoporosis. He provided a wonderful back brace and recommended follow-up treatment with a bone density scan and consideration of osteoporosis medication. Dr. Cole’s compassion and knowledge are very much appreciated in my care!”

“In 1999 I had hurt my back at school. I had lifted a ream of paper and twisted it wrong. My school district offered me Workers’ Compensation and sent me to numerous “orthopedists” who gave me a different diagnosis each time. Some doctors even said there was nothing wrong with me! Fast forward to 2006. I was in such pain I couldn’t get out of bed. I stopped teaching and I was flat on my back for 6 weeks until my primary care physician said, “If you don’t get surgery, I’m putting you into the hospital today.” That’s when I found Dr. Cole. Not only did he do a discectomy and had me walking pain-free the same day, but a year later when I had another disc incident, he repeated the procedure and again I walked out pain-free. Dr. Cole knows what he’s doing, he does it right, and he doesn’t mess around. Thank you Dr. Cole!”
