Dr. Udani is a strong advocate of using minimally invasive techniques to treat degenerative diseases of the cervical and lumbar spine. These conditions include spinal stenosis, disk herniations, and nerve impingement. Most 1-2 level decompressive spine operations can be done on an outpatient basis when performed with minimally invasive technology and equipment. Certain fusions can even be done with just an overnight stay in the hospital. As part of the surgeon design team, Dr. Udani recently developed the Globus Quartex posterior occipito-cervico-thoracic stabilization system.
