Setting the Standard
The mission of Boulder Neurosurgical & Spine Associates (BNA) is to be at the forefront of neurosurgical and orthopedic spine care and to expand the development and application of new techniques and instrumentation. BNA surgeons have published their research in dozens of peer-reviewed articles and have detailed early experience using state-of-the-art and minimally invasive surgical techniques. We hold several patents on innovative instrumentation for spinal surgery that enable surgeons to perform surgery using small incisions, which benefit patients in many ways including less recovery time. After initial evaluation, our surgeons strive to treat patients conservatively and without surgical intervention whenever possible. Patients who undergo surgery are treated with the most advanced and least invasive techniques. BNA surgeons compile clinical information and patient treatment outcomes in order to analyze results and further refine and improve patient care.
A core principle at BNA is to be responsible in our approach to patient care. State-of-the-art technologies help us reduce patient risk in even the most challenging surgical cases. BNA’s quest to be a center of excellence has helped to keep us at the leading edge in our field. BNA was the first practice in the region to perform lumbar (low back) fusion utilizing minimally invasive surgical techniques. BNA was the first in Colorado, and among the several in the world, to use the ultramodern CyberKnife® Radiosurgery system. In addition, BNA was first in Colorado to incorporate intraoperative MRI and O-ARM imaging systems to precisely guide cranial and spinal procedures using real-time feedback during surgery.
Excellence Proven by Results
BNA believes positive results are what matters most to patients. We strongly believe in scientific research and the proven outcomes it affords. Our surgeons are committed to improving treatment protocols and clinical outcomes. In addition to providing consistent, top-quality patient care, improved clinical results means reducing risks, minimizing pain, speeding recovery and avoiding unnecessary surgeries. While neurosurgeons are medicine’s most trained spine and brain specialists, we find that a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach further improves clinical outcomes. We work closely with affiliated specialists providing patients with a speedier and more effective relief. BNA offers some of the region’s best results in the treatment of spine and brain disorders. This is accomplished with patient-driven care blended with heartfelt compassion and dedication to each patient’s unique circumstances.
