Boulder Neurosurgical & Spine Associates OR The mission of Boulder Neurosurgical & Spine Associates (BNA) is to be at the forefront of neurosurgical and orthopedic spine care and to expand the development and application of new techniques and instrumentation. BNA surgeons have published their research in dozens of peer-reviewed articles and have detailed early experience using state-of-the-art, minimally invasive, surgical techniques. We hold several patents on innovative instrumentation for spinal surgery that enable surgeons to perform surgery using small incisions, which benefit patients in many ways including less recovery time. After initial evaluation, our surgeons strive to treat patients conservatively and without surgical intervention whenever possible. Patient who undergo surgery are treated with the most advanced and least invasive techniques. BNA surgeons compile clinical information and patient treatment outcomes in order to analyze results and further refine and improve patient care.
