Spine Surgery

Spinal surgery at WWMG offers patients a shorter recovery time and better outcomes.

dr ali anissipour wwmg orthopedic spine surgeon everett waDr. Ali Anissipour offers patients comprehensive spinal surgery using the latest minimally invasive and motion sparing technologies to provide the best care for his patients.

“My patients are hard-working people who want to get better and want to get back to work. I pour my heart and soul into helping them, to maximize their chances of a quicker recovery and return to their daily activities.”

Many of Dr. Anissipour’s spinal surgeries are overnight procedures; some are even possible on an outpatient basis. His extensive training in state-of-the-art surgical techniques and technology allows him to work with smaller incisions. This results in less damage to muscle tissue, reducing blood loss, post surgical pain and scarring.

Dr. Anissipour also performs cervical disc replacement, an overnight surgery that, for some patients, can be an alternative to traditional ACDF (anterior cervical discectomy and fusion). A damaged neck disc is replaced with a prosthetic disc, maintaining motion.  “It’s only been available in the United States within the last decade,” he said.

Conditions Dr. Anissipour treats:

  • Spinal tumors
  • Spine fractures
  • Acute low back pain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Lumbar herniated disc
  • Spondylosis and Spondylolisthesis
  • Cervical herniated disc
  • Chronic low back pain, if operative
