Motion Preservation Surgery – TOPS

Motion Preservation Surgery – TOPS

Spinal fusion surgery can be effective for some, but it carries the risk of improper healing and increased stress on surrounding areas of your spine. This is usually due to the fused vertebrae section’s immobility.

The TOPS System offers a groundbreaking alternative: motion preservation surgery. This innovative procedure, known as the Total Posterior Spine System, allows for movement in all directions while protecting the spine from harmful forces. It’s a proven treatment for conditions like Spondylolisthesis, Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, Facet Joint Arthrosis, and cysts.

Developed by New Jersey-area Morristown Medical Center spinal doctor and Maxim Health founder Scott Meyer, TOPS provides controlled movement and stability. Unlike traditional methods that limit flexibility, TOPS is particularly beneficial for those with slipped discs.

Clinically proven, TOPS delivers immediate and lasting pain relief, significantly improving patients’ quality of life. The TOPS System incorporates a mechanical implant that replaces damaged tissue removed during surgery. It offers three key advantages:

  • Stabilization. The lumbar spine is supported while maintaining a healthy range of motion.
  • Restored Mobility. Patients regain the ability to bend, flex, walk, and enjoy daily activities.
  • Pain Relief. Most importantly, patients experience immediate and sustained pain relief.

The ability to move freely and without pain is fundamental to a fulfilling life. By restoring natural mobility through motion preservation surgery, TOPS empowers patients to return to their normal activities, rediscover joy, and enhance their overall wellbeing.

In recent news, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the TOPS System for use. Dr. Meyer, a renowned spinal surgeon across the nation, is currently the only specialist performing this innovative procedure. Your spine is in expert hands with his highly skilled team.
