Leading Spine Surgeon at The Brooklyn Hospital Center First to Perform New Spinal Fusion ProcedureAugust 1, 2022
Anders Cohen, DO, Chief of Neurosurgery at The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC), performed the first spinal fusion surgery using a cutting-edge device called KG 2TM SurgeTM from Kleiner Device Labs. Using this new device, Dr. Cohen was able to perform a bone graft that delivered more than three times the volume of the void of the collapsed disk space.
“The KG2 system worked flawlessly and allowed precise placement,” says Dr. Cohen. “Additionally, the system uses a single insertion process, which spares damage to delicate tissue and reduces risk of surgical site infection.”
The Division of Neurosurgery is one of TBHC’s centers of excellence. Led by Dr. Cohen, a nationally recognized expert in minimally invasive spine surgery, the Division offers preventive care, rehabilitation, medical care and effective surgical procedures for multiple conditions of the spine and brain.
