Nashville Spine Surgeons

Spine surgeons at TriStar Skyline have the latest technology to treat all types of spinal injuries and back pain. We can help with minimally-invasive treatments like epidural injections and disc compression so you can have relief from back pain and recover quickly from surgery.

The O-Arm for Spine Surgery

TriStar Skyline is the only hospital in Middle Tennessee offering O-arm® multi-dimensional surgical imaging. This provides more precise, real-time information during spinal surgery. The technology works like a GPS navigation system with intraoperative 3-D imaging to guide the surgeon and the instruments into exact placement throughout the procedure.

The O-arm can visually confirm the accuracy of the procedure before the patient even leaves the operating room, which reduces the likelihood of repeat surgery or complications. The smaller incisions also offer less pain and faster recovery time than traditional spine surgery.
