One of the first outpatient prone transpsoas procedures in the U.S. was recently performed by Samuel Joseph, MD, of Joseph Spine Institute in Tampa, Fla.

Four notes:

1. Dr. Joseph developed the prone transpsoas procedure, which is a spinal fusion in which the patient is positioned prone and the disc space is accessed laterally through the psoas muscle, according to an April 1 news release.

2. The procedure is a single-position surgery that enables surgeons to place rods and screws into the spine without having to manually rotate the patient.

3. Dr. Joseph is a minimally invasive spine specialist, with expertise in endoscopic and robotic-assisted surgery.

4. He is also team spine surgeon for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
