What Is Concierge Spine Surgery? The ISI Concierge Spine Care Experience Why Choose International Spine Institute The Concierge Spine Care Process

The International Spine Institute offers patients least invasive spine procedures featuring stem cell therapy and endoscopic spine surgery. These procedures return patients to their lives quickly, with minimal pain and recovery.   Marco A. Rodriguez, MD, also specializes in artificial disc replacement, and minimally invasive spine surgery, excellent secondary treatment options for advanced degenerative and unstable spinal conditions.

Dr. Rodriguez bridges the gap between pain management and spinal surgery with a philosophy of least invasive procedures. These procedures, are less invasive, use smaller incisions, and have a faster recovery and return to work than minimally invasive spine surgery.  Often patients contact us for expert second opinions because their spine surgeon recommended spinal fusion.  Dr. Rodriguez has had great success sparing many patients a spine fusion with least invasive alternatives.  These least invasive procedures have high patient satisfaction and excellent results getting them back to an active lifestyle.
