Dr. LaRocca has been in private practice since 2001. He has extensive experience in minimally invasive and open techniques of spinal reconstructions, stabilization, and nerve (spinal cord) decompression of the cervical (neck), thoracic (mid-back), and lumbar (low back) spine.
The traditional techniques may involve using large incisions to access the spine during treatment. In certain cases, minimally invasive surgery (MIS) can be used as an alternative.
Advanced techniques and technology are used to minimize the incision to access the spine. This can result in a decrease in pain, recovery, complications, and hospitalization. In many cases, patients go home the same day of the operation.
