Minimally Invasive and Conservative Treatments

SPINE

While back pain is among the most common reasons patients seek medical attention, the treatments vary greatly and often do not require surgery. When surgery is necessary, Dr. Bray is adept at treating complex spine conditions on an outpatient basis by using minimally invasive, microsurgical techniques. For his patients this mean consistently superior results, rapid recoveries, and minimal scarring.

  • Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
  • Spine Fusion (Lumbar or Cervical)
  • Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion (ACDF)
  • Disc Replacement
  • Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion
  • Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF)
  • Spinal Tumor Removal
  • Micro-discectomy
  • Artificial Disc Replacement
  • Microscopic Decompression
  • Stem Cell Injections

“I’m a physician so when I went to find a surgeon that could take care of my wife’s pain-debilitating THORACIC herniated disc, I knew I had to find NOT a dime-a-dozen doc. All roads were paved to Dr. Robert Bray, Jr.! You know, the surgeon that takes care of the LA Kings, America’s Cup Sailing Oracle Team USA & Red Bull North America extreme team!”

“Dr. Bray has been top notch, start to finish. He has assembled a great team who each individually help to augment his own amazing attention to detail. I am a Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills, and spend my life devoted to giving my patients not only great results, but an unparalleled experience….so I know what it takes to run a tight ship… And run it well. He runs his practice incredibly well…. Bray and his team DO NOT DISAPPOINT. I trust him implicitly, so should you.”

“I can’t recommend Dr Bray and his Newport Beach facility highly enough– Review posted there as well

I am eight days removed from my ‘minimally invasive’ back surgery when others were suggested disc fusion. Doctors, nurses, admins, etc all remarkable.”

“Dr. Bray is the best .  After a couple trips to other doctors he was the one who diagnosed my problem, and subsequently removed a benign tumor from my nerve/spinal cord.   I am 14 days post op and doing great .  He and his whole team including his PA Layla are terrific.  Could not be happier with my results.”

“Dr. Bray fixed my C-6 C-7 herniated disc. He replaced the disc and removed bone spurs. I was very scared of the idea of surgery near my spinal cord. I need not have worried.  Dr. Bray and his team were kind, supportive and patient throughout.  My neck is 100% fixed and I have the tiniest scar.  I am beyond grateful for Dr. Bray’s incredible skill and kindness.  If you need surgery, you can be 100% confident that Dr. Bray and his team are the right choice.”

“There is a reason his patients worship him. He is the real deal – not just some big name. I had two neck surgeries with Dr. Bray within 12 months and he took away decades of neck pain and turned me back into a fully functional human being after being so debilitated with pain prior to surgery that I truly thought my quality of life was gone forever.

I know Dr. Bray is a sailor and he is exactly who you would want to be steering your ship through a storm. As I said, he’s not just a big name – he’s the real deal.”
