Marek Kurowski, M.D. -
Minimally Invasive Pain Management
Dr. Kurowski utilizes a variety of interventional treatment options to address spinal, upper and lower extremity, sports and overuse, and neurological injuries and pain. Among the minimally invasive procedures Kurowski has been approved to perform are:
Kyphoplasty which stabilizes the spinal fractures and corrects deformities. The minimally invasive procedure involves making two small incisions on either side of the spine. A balloon is inserted into the area of the fracture and expanded to return the vertebrae to its normal height. Then, the balloon is removed and a special cement is injected to fill the area.
- MILD Procedure (Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression) - A minimally invasive procedure which is designed to help patients suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis; a medical condition in which the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerves at the level of the lumbar vertebra (lower back) due to spinal degeneration that can occur with aging.
Kurowski, is board certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and holds a sub-specialty certification in Pain Medicine and completed a Pain Medicine Fellowship accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) at The Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA. He is also Board Certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
