A cervical discectomy and fusion is a surgical procedure performed on the cervical (neck) region of the spine to help relieve pressure on nerves, and also occasionally on the spinal cord.
Epidural steroid injections (ESI) involve an injection of steroid and anesthetic directly into the area of inflamed nerves in the back. This inflammation is usually the result of nerve compression caused by a narrowed spinal canal (spinal stenosis) or a herniated disc.
Facet joints are the small joints between vertebrae along the back of the spine. Facet injections can be used to either help confirm or deny the location and source of the pain, or they can be used to reduce inflammation and possibly offer long-term relief.
Patients experiencing chronic pain, who have not had success with other treatment options, may benefit from this minimally invasive procedure. A spinal cord stimulator is surgically placed under the skin. This device sends signals to the spine to block pain impulses which can provide a tremendous reduction in pain.
Patients whose pain has not been controlled with more conservative therapies, may be candidates for an Intrathecal Pump. An Intrathecal Pump is a device that continuously administers pain medication directly into the spinal fluid to relieve pain or muscle spasm.
Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for people suffering with compression fractures of the spine. The procedure involves the insertion of a balloon into the collapsed vertebra, followed by injection of a special material.
A lumbar fusion is an operation to stabilize the lower back by creating bony bridges between at least two vertebrae and eliminating motion between them. This can be accomplished by fusing the vertebral bodies in front (anterior fusion) or by fusing the facet joints and lamina in the back (posterior fusion).
The lumbar area of the spine is better known as the lower back. The lamina is a part of each vertebra. A lumbar laminectomy is the surgical removal of the lamina or part of the lamina on one or more of the vertebrae in the lower back.
Lumbar microsdiscectomy is a surgical treatment for the lumbar spine (lower back). The discs are the shock absorbing cushions in between each of the lumbar vertebrae. Discs can become injured or worn resulting in a herniation. Sometimes, this is referred to this as a slipped or ruptured disc.
A nucleoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that is used for alleviating back and leg pain caused by a herniated or bulging disc. Rather than making an incision, the physician uses X-ray guidance to place a needle-like device inside the problem disc to remove tissue.
Percutaneous disc decompression, is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat pain from a herniated, non-ruptured disc. Unlike traditional methods of discectomy, percutaneous decompression removes the herniated disc material through a needle instead of an open incision.
An interspinous spacer is a device that is inserted into the spine to treat pain associated with spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis causes a narrowing of the space between vertebrae resulting in compression of nerves and subsequent pain, numbness and weakness.
Non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment of the spine is sometimes referred to as “conservative” treatment. The vast majority of back or neck problems are successfully resolved with conservative treatments. Treatment may be as simple as a reassurance that the problem is not serious and all that is needed...
Kyphoplasty and verebroplasty are minimally invasive surgical procedures commonly performed to treat spinal compression fractures, also known as vertebral compression fractures (VCFs). Osteoporosis causes twice as many spinal fractures than hip fractures.
