Why Sonospine®?

THE CLEAR CHOICE FOR ultrasonic spine surgery

Sonospine® is the premier center for minimally disruptive spine surgery. We operate under the belief that surgery can and should be better.

The Advantage of Ultrasonic Spine Surgery

While there is much discussion about minimally invasive surgery, often this is only referring to the size of the incision. These traditional surgeries still disturb much of the surrounding bone and muscle. The Sonospine® Ultrasonic Spine technique allows our surgeons access to the spinal canal with less disruption of bone, joints, and other tissues. Once at the source of your pain, advanced ultrasonic instruments precisely sculpt away bone and disc to restore your spine’s normal anatomy decompressing nerves and relieving pain.

What Makes Sonospine® the Right Choice?

At Sonospine®, we have a talented group of surgeons and medical professionals. Dr. Ellegala works with industry leaders, like Misonix, to develop and refine the most effective tools and techniques. Sonospine is constantly working to improve spine surgery and holds 22 patent claims in ultrasonic surgery, all with the goal of improving patient’s lives. » Read about our partnership with Misonix, Inc.

With Sonospine®, a pain-free future is within reach. The procedure can help treat a number of neck and back spinal conditions that dramatically affect quality of life.

Why Is Sonospine® Better Than Other Procedures?

Sonospine® uses advanced surgical ultrasound energy to sculpt and dissolve bone in ways never imagined. For over 40 years, bone rongeurs (similar to cutting pliers) and other conventional instruments have been the tools of choice for spinal surgery. Even surgeries deemed “minimally invasive” utilize rongeurs to access the spinal canal. Sonospine® employs a minimally disruptive ultrasonic device, the only tool which eliminates the use of rongeurs to gain entry to the source of your pain. Less disruption means less time to a full recovery, fewer complications, faster pain resolution, and a return to pain free mobility.

Is the Sonospine® procedure covered by insurance?

While we have a number of options for coverage including partial and full, we would be happy to present all approaches on a patient by patient case. Please contact us at 888-95-SPINE to find out more.
