Dr. Robert Norton’s prestigious academic training combined with a passion for teaching and research allows him to take an individual and evidence-based approach to every patient, and to provide high quality care that is research and evidence-based with proven and expected results.
Dr. Norton is skilled in the most advanced spinal surgical techniques and emerging technologies including minimally invasive outpatient spine surgery. “This type of surgery allows for exponentially faster recovery than traditional open procedures. Patients often wake up from surgery hugging me in amazement that their pain is gone and they can walk out the door within a few hours of surgery with only a Band-Aid.”
“Utilizing small window incisions, a powerful surgical microscope and x-ray guidance to navigate precisely where I need to go, I am able to perform a wide range of procedures including microdiscectomy, laminectomy, neck & back fusion, and artificial disc replacement to name a few,” Dr. Norton explains.
With the latest technology, our minimally invasive surgery of the spine yields amazing results with a fast recovery. I enjoy training other medical students and surgical residents as well as practicing doctors from all over the world who come to observe me perform spine surgery in an outpatient setting.”
Dr. Norton also treats compression fractures of the spine in his office in about 10-minutes, with an easy solution called a kyphoplasty. “The pain is gone immediately and patients leave with just a Band-Aid and a smile,” Dr. Norton adds.
