If you have neck pain, no one needs to tell you how it disrupts your entire life. Even simple things like turning your head can cause excruciating pain. Knowing what causes your pain won’t make it feel any better but understanding the source can help you start your journey to greater healing.

Your thoracic spine – also known as the upper and mid-back – is the central part of the spine, running from the base of your neck to the bottom of your rib cage. This part of the spine holds the body upright while protecting the important organs of the chest.

Back pain affects your entire outlook on life. It’s difficult to be active, almost impossible to get comfortable, and even harder to engage in the everyday activities most people take for granted.

what we do minimally invasive surgery

A Minimally Invasive Approach.

It wasn’t that long ago when having an operation on your spine meant major surgery, with days in the hospital and weeks of recovery. Today, however, thanks to new approaches and better technologies, many spine surgeries can be performed as a minimally invasive procedure, and some can even be performed on an outpatient basis.


In the past, having any type of spine surgery meant an open procedure and a painful, lengthy recovery.  Dr. Finch, however, uses minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to help you get back to living your life as quickly as possible.


Smaller incisions and advanced technology such as endoscopy and navigated surgery allow Dr. Finch to avoid the kind of tissue damage that can occur during open surgery. Minimally invasive procedures also have a number of different advantages over traditional surgery, including:

  • Less pain
  • Less tissue and muscle damage
  • Typically an outpatient procedure
  • Smaller incision
  • Faster return to activity
