Top Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia Orthopedic Surgeons Specializing in Spine Stabilization System (DYNESYS®)

This minimally-invasive surgical procedure treats chronic lower back or leg pain by stabilizing damaged or misaligned vertebrae with specially-designed screws, spacers and cables. The flexible DYNESYS® system is an alternative to spinal fusion. It aligns and supports the spine while still allowing some flexibility and movement. The surgery takes two to three hours to perform.
