Dr. Samuel A. Joseph Jr, First in the Nation to Perform Outpatient PTP (Prone Transpsoas)

Share Article

Physicians like Dr. Samuel Joseph, founder of Joseph Spine Institute in Tampa Florida, are constantly researching and developing new ways to improve minimally invasive spine techniques for their patients. Dr. Joseph works in conjunction with other leaders in spine research, development and technology to bring minimally invasive procedures to complex spine conditions, which in turn results in better faster recovery for patients.

"At Joseph Spine Institute we are dedicated to bring our patients the latest in technology, procedures and devices to insure our patients the best possible outcome," Dr. Samuel Joseph.

Take for example a traditional lateral interbody fusion (LIF) that has a patient lying in a lateral position. Not only can the position be unfamiliar to the surgeon and staff which leads to inefficiencies in preoperative setup and repositioning for posterior procedures, but literature demonstrates that the lateral decubitus position may not be ideal for achieving sagittal alignment - the greatest correlative to a long-term positive outcomes.

The newly developed procedure performed by Dr. Joseph, PTP (Prone Transpsoas) has many benefits that range from superior surgical efficiency to powerful correction abilities in both the sagittal and coronal planes. PTP allows for the patient to remain in one position for the entire procedure. The prone position creates efficiencies by allowing for a single-position surgery providing simultaneous access to the anterior column and posterior column of the spine.
