CERVICAL – THORACIC – LUMBAR SPINE

Dr. Zahir is passionate about the latest advancements in endoscopic spine surgery. His expertise in this field has allowed him to perform many non-fusion procedures on patients who were once felt to need a spine fusion. Dr. Zahir has also performed endoscopic (non-fusion procedures) on patients who previously had a fusion.

Dr. Zahir also performs a variety of minimally invasive and traditional spinal procedures. This versatility in training allows him to pick the best option for each patient – with a bias towards less invasive procedures. In some cases where an endoscopic procedure is simply not possible, Dr. Zahir will review all alternative options with each patient.
