Awake Spinal Fusion

While traditional spinal fusion surgery is considered to be an extensive procedure, requiring general anesthesia and a hospital stay, Awake Spinal Fusion is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require general anesthesia. We use a combination of local (spinal) anesthesia along with a novel regional anesthesia protocol which results in significantly less pain and less narcotics.  Most patients are able to walk a few hours after surgery.  Read more.

    Minimally Invasive

    Minimally invasive spine surgery involves making a small incision (approximately 1 - 2 inches) in the skin.

    Regional Anesthesia

    Awake Spinal Fusion doesn’t use general anesthesia, relying instead on highly effective regional anesthesia.

    Faster Healing

    Because the incision is so small and the procedure less invasive, you heal faster and more effectively.

    Minimal Opioids

    A smaller incision means less muscle trauma, which in turn, means less pain after surgery.

    Faster Recovery

    Since we don’t use general anesthesia, patients are on their feet faster. In fact, many patients are able to leave the hospital the same day!

    Compassionate Care

    Dr. Sharan is a pioneer and advocate of the Awake Spinal Fusion technique so that patients could get better faster.
