Dr. Hammerstein is a Fellowship-Trained Spine Surgeon. He received his specialty training from some of the pioneers of \"Motion-Sparing\" and \"Minimally Invasive\" spine surgery. These techniques have revolutionized spine surgery. Minimally Invasive spine surgery is also referred to as; small-incision, microscopic, tube, endoscopic, and arthroscopic spine surgery. Minimally Invasive spine surgery techniques have been shown to do less muscle damage, and create less scar tissue during your surgery. Motion-Sparing technology includes devices such as Cervical and Lumbar Disc Replacement and the X-Stop Device. These devices are alternatives to fusion. Theoretically they delay the development of adjacent level degeneration--and subsequent spine surgeries. Technical factors aside, Dr. Hammerstein takes pride in a personalized approach to your pain. Treating your pain and not just the MRI or X-Ray is of utmost importance. Through Northern Rockies Orthopaedic Clinic, he is able to offer a multi-modal approach which includes many non-surgical techniques to diagnose and treat your pain.
