Minimally invasive spine surgery, robotic guidance systems & articial disc enhances spine care in 2017 Thanks to new minimally invasive surgery techniques, many patients with herniated disc symptoms like radiating pain or numbness in a leg, can now have surgery and be home the same day. Instead of a three-inch long incision, Dr. Rohan, Jr. can now remove the herniated disc through an endoscope the size of a ballpoint pen. The tiny inch-long incision is then covered with a bandaid. Why should that matter? Because that means a faster and less painful recovery for our patients. It takes considerable training to be procient with the latest spine surgery instrumentation. Dr. Rohan, Jr. is the only spine surgeon in the Panama City region using this new endocopic technology. Panama City Spine features the expertise of Dr. Rohan, a board-certied orthopedic spine surgeon who is fellowship-trained in spine. “We emphasize non-surgical treatment options where possible, including therapy and spinal injections,” Dr. Rohan explains. “However sometimes symptoms can progress to radiating pain into an arm or leg. Other red ag symptoms include numbness or weakness in a leg or arm. If this type of neurological decit is not treated promptly, these symptoms can become permanent.” Dr. Rohan notes that the spine center uses the newest minimally invasive spine surgery techniques and instrumentation. “While this can involve more training to operate through a half-inch incision with tubular retractors, rather than an open 3-inch incision, the benets are huge for the patient,” Dr. Rohan explains. “A tiny incision means less disruption to muscles and ligaments and a quicker, less painful recovery. Consequently, most patients can have their spine surgery in the morning and be home later the same day to recover in the comfort of their own home. Also less blood loss eliminates the risk of having to use blood from a blood bank.” “We recognized that for those in the gulf coast region, there is a need for a spine program that uses the newest minimally invasive instrumentation,” explains Dr. Rohan. “The savvy patient should look for this expertise. In the past, they had to drive 300 miles. Now it’s close to where they live.” The spine center has an online encyclopedia about back and neck pain at PanamaCitySpine. com that has symptom charts and stretches that can relieve symptoms.

    PHYSICIAN PROFILE

    MICHAEL ROHAN JR., D.O.Board-certified orthopedic surgeonFellowship-trained in spine Specializing in minimally invasive spine surgery, motion preservation & artificial disc replacement

    Dr. Rohan specializes in the treatment of

    back and neck pain, including degenerative

    disease, spinal deformity (scoliosis) and spinal

    trauma. Dr. Rohan received his D.O. degree

    from Nova Southeastern University College

    of Osteopathic Medicine and completed

    his orthopedic surgery residency at the

    University of Medicine in New Jersey. He then

    completed a spine surgery fellowship at the

    world-renowned Texas Back Institute where

    he learned some of the latest innovations

    in minimally invasive spine surgery, motion

    preservation surgery and artificial disc

    replacement.

    Dr. Rohan is a member of the American

    Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics and

    is able to surgically treat problems in the

    cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. He has

    also participated in spine surgery research

    projects and has published his results in the

    annual meeting of the North American Spine

    Society.

    MAZOR ROBOTICS

    Dr. Michael Rohan, Jr. specializes in the treatment of back and neck pain using Mazor Robotics with its sophisticated guidance system. Mazor Robotics is a leading innovator in spine surgery.

    The Mazor surgical robotic system helps improve pinpoint precision throughout the spine surgery, which increases both accuracy and favorable clinical outcomes. This highly advanced robotic system has been used in thousands of spinal procedures worldwide, including spinal implants. Dr. Rohan maintains the Mazor robotic technology is especially beneficial for complex spine surgeries. The intuitive interface can plan operations in a virtual 3D environment, which creates a surgical blueprint for better accuracy. Dr. Rohan is a leading innovator in spine surgery using Mazor Robotics and is one of a few spine surgeons in Northwest Florida using Mazor robotic technology.

  • While some spine surgeons use physician extend-ers to evaluate patients, at Panama City Spine ev-ery patient sees Dr. Michael X. Rohan, Jr., a board certified orthopedic spine surgeon. Dr. Rohan is fellowship-trained in spine surgery at Texas Back Institute, the first spine specialty center in the na-tion. “Back and neck pain can be complex to diag-nose and treat,” explains Dr. Rohan, Jr. “We believe every patient needs to be evaluated by the spine specialist rather than a physician extender.” Those who need spine surgery benefit from access the newest advance in artificial disc tech-nology. In 2015, Dr. Michael Rohan, Jr. was one of the first spine surgeons in the region to use the latest advance in artificial discs for the cervical (neck) area: Mobi-C® artificial disc. Dr. Michael Rohan Jr. is now able to provide the latest motion-preservation device for those patients who need surgery to repair herniated discs in the neck. Mobi-C® is the first and only cervical disc replacement device to receive FDA approval to treat both one-level and two-level cervical disc disease. Like all artificial discs, the advantages of the Mobi-C® device over fusion is that the neck maintains normal motion and reduces the stress placed on the other discs in the neck. The goal with motion preservation is to retain the normal rotation of the neck and lessen the need for any future surgery at other levels in the neck. Patients can learn more about new artificial disc replacement options at PanamaCitySpine.com and by calling Panama City Spine at 850-481-8752 for an evaluation to see if they qualify for artificial disc replacement.

    Panama City Spine performs a variety of minimally invasive spine surgeries, including the following:

    MIS Lumbar DiscectomyMIS Posterior Cervical Discectomy

    MIS Lumbar FusionLateral interbody fusion (LIF)

    Posterior cervical microforaminotomy (PCMF)Anterior cervical discectomy
