The team of Long Island spine specialists at Reconstructive Spine Surgery is enthusiastic about the improvements they are seeing as a result of technical advances in spine stabilization surgery.
Dr. Marc Agulnick, a member of the Reconstructive Spine Surgery team who is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, says patients with spinal column deformities are benefitting from advances in the understanding of the spine’s biomechanics.
“Not only do we know more about spine stabilization surgery, but there have been great technical advances in the tools used during surgery,” Dr. Agulnick says. “The instruments we’re using now are both stronger and lighter than before.”
Dr. Agulnick says development has been so rapid that he is seeing significant improvement in surgical outcome compared to only 2 years ago.
“The goal of spine surgery in New York is to reduce back pain while correcting the deformity,” Dr. Agulnick says. “Each patient needs an individualized approach to his or her spinal deformity, and these advancements enable us to design each procedure to match the patient’s exact needs. It’s exciting to see how much these advancements have helped our patients in just the past 2 years.”
Dr. Benjamin Cohen, another member of the Reconstructive Spine Surgery team, is certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery. He treats a wide range of neck and back conditions related to both illnesses and injury.
"Advances in surgical techniques allow surgeons to more effectively treat specific conditions," Dr. Cohen says. "This is important because our goal is to stop conditions from worsening and to alleviate back pain for our New York patients.
Dr. Thomas Davenport, a plastic surgeon at Reconstructive Spine Surgery, says that specializing in a specific area of medicine has allowed him to perfect his skills.
“Working with Dr. Agulnick and Dr. Cohen has given me greater insight into the world of spine surgery and has enabled me to develop my skills as a plastic surgeon,” Dr. Davenport says. “The three of us work together as one unit to give patients the best results possible.”
