Timothy Luke, M.D.

Minimally Invasive Spine is Arizona’s Premier Spine Team focused on delivering the highest quality care.

At Minimally Invasive Spine, Dr. Luke and the MIS team understand the constraints that chronic neck and back pain can place on your personal and professional life. Often, our patients have endured continual pain for several years, finding little to no relief in conservative methods of pain management, such as chiropractic care and steroid injections. Our goal is to help our patients find relief from pain and regain their quality of life through minimally invasive spine surgery specific to each patient's spinal condition.

Dr. Luke has performed over 7,500 spinal decompression surgeries!
Dr. Luke also specializes in ANTI-Fusion Surgery

Bulging Disc

A bulging disc is quite common, and usually remains undetected until the disc bulge comes in contact with adjacent nerves leading to pain and other symptoms.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is not truly a disease, but more of a chain of events that naturally occur as we age. There is no avoiding degenerative disc disease, but you may slow its progress.

Disc Tear

As the outer shell of your disc begins to toughen or dry up, a painful crack or tear could happen. Learn what a disc tear is, and how you can recover from it.

Facet Joint Syndrome

Facet Joint Syndrome refers to the degeneration of the arthritic changes that occur in your facet joints. Age and daily wear and tear are the most common culprits.

Foraminal Stenosis

Foraminal Stenosis describes the narrowing of the foramen. As the foramen narrows, exiting nerves can become compressed causing pain and other symptoms.


"The patient is very happy and shares “My experience was amazing. The staff provided great care throughout my procedure. Dr. Luke explained everything in great detail and I now have my life back. Before the procedure I struggled everyday with pain and the inability to do most things.”

Dr. Luke is proud of his happy patients and appreciates giving back! When surgery is needed, Dr. Luke’s team is first class and provides excellent service and care.

Our patient is very happy and shared, "I was taken care of by Dr. Luke and was amazed with his treatment. He was very kind and knowledgeable! He explained procedures and addressed my concerns! Thank you Dr. Luke! I will always recommend you guys!"

We love seeing our patient get back to living a life they love after a minimally invasive spine surgery. Dr. Luke performed an L4-L5 decompression surgery to alleviate back and leg pain.

Carlos wrote, "Before my laminectomy with Dr. Luke I had been in terrible pain for 4 years. I tried everything from physical therapy to shots with little results. The pain kept me from enjoying the outdoors and working out. After the procedure I was hiking within a week. I’m in considerably less pain and I can once again be active. Thank you so much."
