Why Sonospine®?


Sonospine®  is a premier center for minimally disruptive ultrasonic enhanced spine surgery. We believe that advanced technology can improve spine surgery to improve outcomes. We partner with medical device companies to develop better technologies that can help improve spine care.


The Advantage of Ultrasonic Spine Surgery


The technology we use, produced by Misonix a leader in ultrasonic surgical instrumentation, generates high frequency (ultrasonic) vibrations that can be applied to bone spurs, disc herniations, and ligament overgrowth that can be irritate or compress nerves. It allows precise removal of the pathology in millimeter increments. It is this precision and the small size of the device that, we believe, gives ultrasonic enhanced surgery an advantage over other methods we use.  


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 for the benefit of the patients we serve. We are constantly working to improve technology and patient outcomes and hold 22 patent claims in ultrasonic devices, all with the goal of improving patient’s lives. » Read about our partnership with Misonix, Inc.
