Board certified orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Micah Smith, joined Ortho NorthEast’s SpineONE team in 2013. He has a particular interest in cervical spine, deformity, and minimally invasive surgery. He employs minimally and less invasive principles to his surgical approach to spine surgery as appropriate, including XLIF and percutaneous fixation. He also utilizes motion preserving technology in the cervical spine with disc replacement surgery when indicated. He does complex deformity using both traditional open and minimally invasive techniques. He performs super minimally invasive fusions that allow patients to go home the same day as surgery and also does endoscopic discectomies.
