THE SPINE INSTITUTE CENTER FOR SPINAL RESTORATION
With the latest conservative healing and rehabilitation practices, The Spine Institute’s trusted physicians can help you evaluate and treat the cause of your spinal pain, rather than its symptoms.
When surgery is the most appropriate option, we use a multidisciplinary approach to limit pain, reduce time in the hospital, and speed up recovery so you can get back to doing the things you love.
Minimally invasive surgery means, in many cases, performing surgery without open incisions. For patients, this can translate into a lower risk of infection, faster recovery, and less scarring.
Dr. Hyun Bae is the leading investigator on the Mobi-C disc replacement as well as a wide array of additional non-fusion, motion preservation alternatives to spinal surgery.
In addition to being one of the first doctors to use growth factor tissue engineering for intervertebral discs in Santa Monica, Dr.Bae’s success with multilevel artificial disc replacement for both the lumbar and cervical spine and his use of innovative medical devices for minimally invasive spinal surgery has allowed thousands of patients to return to their normal lifestyles, free from spine-related pain.
Dr. Bae is also the recipient of the 2016 Spine Surgeon Leadership Award. In addition to his revolutionary work at The Spine Institute, he is the professor of surgery and director of spine education at Cedars-Sinai Spine Center. Since 2016, Dr. Bae has been part of the exclusive Super Doctors list, which features only five percent of the spine surgery experts in a given state or region.
Dr. Bae is the best. “Dr. Bae did a wonderful job on my back a little less than a year ago. I healed perfectly, and am now much more flexible and completely pain free. Dr. Bae is most pleasant too me, communicates clearly and listens to me. I could not want a better doctor.”
“Amazing, saved me on many levels of worry. I am honored to have Dr Bar be so dedicated to healing. … Dr. Bae brought the reality to a finite, understable knowledge for me. The absolute best surgeon!!!”
“Thank you Dr Bae for giving me back a pain free life. I can’t believe that it’s only been two month since the surgery and very very happy with the results.Would recommend Dr. Bae to anyone with a back problem.”
