Faster Recovery from Spine Surgery

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." - Carol Hanna, Hammond resident
