Minimally Invasive TLIF

Spine Surgery - Great Results

Life Enhancing Surgery

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery was developed to treat disorders of the spine with less disruption to the muscles. This has revolutionized spine surgery and delivers results including:
  • Significantly less post-operative pain
  • Smaller incisions
  • Quicker recovery: reduced hospitalization time
  • Speeds return to normal function
"With this new procedure, patients on average require 50% less pain medication and recover faster. It’s conceivable that a patient could be resuming daily activities within days of surgery."
-- Dr. Thomas Loftus


Dr. Loftus is Fantastic!

Before the surgery with Dr. Loftus I could not stand up straight and was in pain at all times. Since the surgery I have gone back to work with no problems at all and am able to work like I was before I ruptured the two discs. Dr. Loftus was fantastic. I cannot thank him enough for getting me back to living my life pain free! I would and have recommended him to anyone with any type of back pain.

Extremely Knowledgeable

I have had two major complicated back surgeries after two separate accidents. Dr. Thomas Loftus is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Back surgery is scary. You hear so many horror stories and you don't know who to choose. I am walking and back to my normal activities after only six weeks. At three weeks, I was climbing stairs and walked 3/4 of a mile one day! I no longer need the wheelchair or the walker or the cane! Thanks Dr. Loftus!!

Remarkable Outcome

I am so appreciative of Dr. Thomas Loftus and PA James Parks for giving me my life back! So far I am recovering from my neck/spinal surgery. Remarkable outcome and healing process. There are great doctors out there, you just have to do your research. I found the BEST doctors along with a wonderful office staff! These doctors are so caring, great bedside manners. They made me feel like I was the only patient they had, I highly recommend them!!
