Phoenix Magazine Top Doctor 2021

2021 Phoenix TOP DOCS

Congratulations to Dr. Christopher Yeung and Dr. Justin Field on their 2021 TOP DOCS nomination by PHOENIX magazine!

Dr. Justin Field featured again on Scottsdale Health Care’s “Medical Minute”

Here is the latest Medical Minute for Dr. Justin Field talking about RISE, the instrumentation he and Dr. Christopher Yeung developed. This instrument is significant because it is inserted in a small opening and can expand the tip once inside the patient to provide greater disc height than previously possible before, more similar to the anatomical position of their spine prior to the injury or degeneration.

Journal of Spine ISSN: 2165-7939

New Publication from the Surgeons at DISC

Drs. Anthony T. Yeung, Christopher A. Yeung, Nima Salari, and Justin Field of DISC, along with James Navratil and Harrison Maio, have recently published an article in the Journal of Spine, an Open Access, peer reviewed, academic journal that provides a complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in all areas of the field.

The article is titled “Lessons Learned Using Local Anesthesia for Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spine Surgery” and focuses on 9 main lessons that these surgeons have encountered while utilizing local anesthesia during minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery to relieve spine pain – chief among them that operating under local anesthesia allows the patient to respond and provide feedback during surgery that is invaluable for patient safety and for the assessment of the pain generators and ultimately understanding of the source of pain that the surgeon is targeting.

Drs. Anthony and Christopher Yeung and Dr. Justin Field recently contributed a chapter to the book Surgical Approaches to the Spine – a step-by-step, state-of-the-art procedural manual that covers over 50 unique surgical approaches for injuries and conditions of the spine.

Their chapter, entitled “Endoscopic Foraminal Approach to the Lumbar Spine” goes into greater detail about the procedure, how it was developed and what to look for.
