Dr. Cantor at the Cantor Spine Institute has pioneered the use of ultrasonic technology to completely change the way spinal surgery is done, redefining, and moving minimal invasive surgery into the future.
Ultrasonic bone "sculpting" tools can do what lasers and traditional bone cutting drills cannot. The vibrating blades can work safely, even in direct contact with delicate nerves. When it touches your finger, it feels like an electric toothbrush, but it will cut through hard bone spurs "like a hot knife through butter". This enables "precision" spinal surgery, done through much smaller incisions. Using this "game changing" technology, Dr. Cantor has developed a unique approach that can actually work inside the spine and effectively isolate and dissolve painful, nerve compressing bone spurs without removing or damaging the important mechanical structures of the spine. Because the structure is saved, it does not have to be rebuilt with rods and screws and fusions.
Here are just some of the benefits experienced by Dr. Cantor’s patients following minimally invasive Ultrasonic Spine Surgery
Our first goal is always to avoid surgery. Most patients with spinal problems will recover with well-managed and appropriate nonsurgical treatment. Those who do not respond, now have better options. Ultrasonic surgery offers a new world of opportunities for a better outcome.
If you have an incapacitating pain and have not responded to conservative treatments, ultrasonic surgery can restore pain free mobility. Greater than 93% of our patients after recovery report that if the circumstances were the same, they would do it again.
"If you want something new,
you have to stop doing something old" ― Peter F. Drucker
Surgery was definitely one of the most transformative things that ever happened to me!

We focus on fixing your problem utilizing state-of-the-art technology while maintaining a minimally invasive philosophy.
Cantor Spine Institute provides comprehensive, personalized care management and access to modern medical facilities and, above all, a board-certified, pioneering orthopedic surgeon. As someone who has undergone spine surgery more than twice, Dr. Jeffrey Cantor remains steadfast in his efforts to evolve minimally invasive surgical techniques, technology, and tools. These tools allow him to concentrate on specific bones in the spine, allowing patients to enjoy an improved quality of life and a spine not being held together using rods and screws. These tools deliver an optimum level of finely tuned accuracy to the affected parts of the spine, allowing patients to experience a faster recovery time, less pain, and potentially few complications.
Today’s modern spine surgery should focus on developing operations that solve problems without necessarily having to involve fusion. With ultrasonic surgical technologies and tools, Dr. Cantor’s techniques are redefining the treatment of conditions such as lumbar and cervical stenosis, spondylolisthesis, lumbar and cervical disc herniation, scoliosis, and sciatica by progressing beyond the use of these spinal fusions.
