    Dr. Armen Oganesian, Fellowship-trained Orthopedic Spine Surgeon

    What is Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery?


    Over time and with age, intervertebral discs, vertebrae, and ligament degeneration can take place.  The narrowing that results often causes nerves to be squeezed or even pinched.  While wear and tear is part of the aging process, arthritis of the spine, spondylolisthesis, herniated discs, tumors, or malformation of the spine could also cause Spinal Stenosis. Other causes can be congenital factors such as developmentally narrow spinal canal.

    “There is no greater joy than to be able to help restore function and provide pain relief for those in need of it.” 

    Dr. Armen Oganesian, DO, MPH at The Modern Orthopedic Spine Specialists

    The Modern Orthopedic Spine Specialists have been recognized as the premier spine specialist in the Southern California region.  Having received numerous state and local accolades for his success with minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Armen Oganesian believes the majority of back pain can be addressed non-surgically with proper guidance. For the small minority of patients, where surgery is needed, he employs techniques to decrease post-operative pain, quicken the recovery period, and lessen the burden of surgical trauma on a patient’s overall wellness.   In fact, most incisions are just 7mm in length
