During these 32 years of practice, 60% of his activity has been related to Spine Surgery, transforming the way this surgery is performed, evolving it to the present Minimally Invasive Techniques and new concepts in motion preservation. The rest of Dr. Olivers practice has been devoted to complex microsurgical and endoscopic skull base tumors, pituitary adenomas, microvascular decompression and epilepsy surgery, providing the development of an extraordinary expertise and skill in delicate and precise microsurgery that offers innovative techniques for the performance of Neurosurgery and particularly Spine Surgery.
