The Summit and Inspired Spine Health Partner to Introduce Innovative Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery in Hutchinson

HUTCHINSON, KS – A groundbreaking, minimally-invasive spine surgery is now available in Hutchinson, Kansas, thanks to a partnership between The Summit and Inspired Spine Health. One of the method’s pioneers, renowned neuro-spine surgeon Dr. Hamid Abassi, is now conducting surgeries at The Summit in Hutchinson.


Through this partnership, patients with back pain have access to a state-of-the-art, faster-recovery, muscle-sparing procedure that was previously unavailable in the region. Dr. Abassi’s practice is already attracting patients from as far as Texas.

Dr. Abbasi is one of the nation’s leading spine surgeons. He specializes in minimally invasive spine surgeries and is one of the most experienced surgeons that perform the Trans-Kambin OLLIF (Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion) procedure and is the only surgeon currently performing the MIS-DTIF (Minimally Invasive Direct Thoracic Interbody Fusion).

This approach utilizes smaller incisions, resulting in reduced muscular disruption, reduced scarring, and minimal blood loss. This allows patients to return to normal daily activities faster, with reduced pain and improved mobility. And because of the high-safety, low-risk profile, Inspired Spine Health can even help people who have been turned away from traditional spine surgery because of their age, weight, or the complexity of their condition.  


“Kansans suffering with debilitating back conditions deserve access to new methods and technologies right here at home,” said Randy Roatch, CEO of The Summit. “We are thrilled to bring Dr. Abassi to Hutchinson as one more step in becoming a leading orthopedic and spine center in the Midwest.” 


The Summit encourages individuals suffering from back pain or spinal conditions to schedule a consultation with Dr. Abassi and his staff, so they can learn more about their potential treatment plans and take the first step towards regaining their quality of life.
