CERVICAL - THORACIC - LUMBAR SPINE

Dr. Zahir's passion as a spine surgeon is advancing 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 also has performed endoscopic (non-fusion procedures) on patients who previously had a fusion.

 

Dr. Zahir 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. There are cases where an endoscopic procedure is simply not possible - Dr. Zahir will review all options with each patient.
