Executive Spine Surgery Announces Dr. Carl Spivak
Joins New Health Plans

(Hackettstown, NJ) Dr. Carl Spivak, a Back Surgeon in NJ, proudly announces he has joined Horizon NJ TotalCare (HMO SNP). Doing so allows Dr. Spivak to treat more patients and provide them with the help they need to live the highest quality of life achievable. He specializes in minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery and is one of a few neurosurgeons in the state experienced in both this technique and interventional pain management. As a result, he brings a unique perspective to each case, one that helps him determine the optimal treatment for the individual patient.
“Endoscopic spine surgery offers numerous benefits over traditional back surgery. First and foremost, patients find their recovery time is minimized and they experience less pain following the procedure. Numerous factors play a role in this, but patients may find they are able to return home the same day. The extent of the surgery and the patient’s overall health are two factors, and some patients find they can return to work in only a matter of weeks. Others may need a few months of restricted activity before they are fully back on their feet,” Dr. Spivak explains.
Dr. Spivak undertook specialized fellowship training at Stanford University in the areas of complex spine and peripheral nerve surgery. In addition, he completed a specialized fellowship at Semmes-Murphey Spine and Neurological Institute in minimally invasive spine surgery and interventional pain management. Today, he offers the interventional and surgical expertise patients need when dealing with a disease that affects the spine and nerves.
“Patients want minimal downtime and the fewest complications possible. Any surgery does come with risks, yet these risks can be reduced. When a person opts for endoscopic spine surgery, the risk of infection is minimized. This is due to the small area to be operated on and the reduced incision size. Other complications are likewise minimized, due to less tissue and muscle being affected by the procedure,” Dr. Spivak continues.
Endoscopic surgery also reduces scarring on account of the small incision. In fact, in many cases, the incision is no bigger than a dime in terms of size. Patients find they no longer must deal with large scars to obtain the relief they need, and this is only one of the many options available today.
