Inspired Spine Patients & Their Stories

Everything we do, every advancement we create in spinal treatment, is designed to make minimally invasive spinal care easier on you.

For all the people who are afraid of back surgery, who’ve been told “there’s nothing that can be done”, or who depend on narcotics for pain relief, we are inspired to make a difference in their lives.

Your Journey is Our Inspiration

Inspired Spine is truly inspired by our patients. Every one of our patients come from varied walks of life – and each have individual challenges and backgrounds. Their stories touch our lives every day and we are glad they have shared their back treatment journey with us. In turn, we’re glad we can share their stories with you.

We hope you’re inspired by their stories too.

OLLIF Patient Stories

The OLLIF (Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion) procedure is a minimally invasive spinal surgery created by Dr. Hamid Abbasi. It is used when the patient has tried other conservative treatments without significant improvement for conditions like scoliosisspondylolisthesisherniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.

The procedure is faster than traditional lumbar fusion, requires much less blood loss, and provides the patient with excellent pain relief with a very brief recovery period.

But don’t just take our word on it. Below are a few patients who have had the OLLIF procedure. Here are their stories.

MIS-DTIF (Minimally Invasive Direct Thoracic Interbody Fusion) is an updated version of traditional, invasive thoracic surgeries that can treat degenerative disc disease, thoracic herniated discs, degenerative scoliosis, and other thoracic conditions with a fraction of the risk and healing time.

MIS-DTIF has many advantages over traditional thoracic surgery including decreased blood loss, reduced risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, no cutting or removal of bone or muscle tissue, less trauma to you and your body, and faster recovery time.

Inspired Spine is the ONLY spinal treatment provider in the nation that is able to perform an MIS-DTIF procedure.
