Recovery is quicker and hospital stays shorter with X-LIF, a minimally
invasive technique for spine surgery. Neurosurgeon David L. Masel, MD,
of North Oaks Neurosurgery uses X-ray guidance to repair damaged nerves.
Dr. Masel is board-certified and a fellow of the American College of Neurosurgery
and is internationally recognized as a top neurosurgeon.
"Before having the X-LIF surgery, I was in intense pain and could
hardly walk. A day or two after the surgery, I was already feeling the
difference, and I am amazed at how quickly I seemed to heal. Dr. Masel
is a remarkable doctor. I thank him for giving me my life back. If I had
to do it again, I would be knocking at Dr. Masel’s door." -
