Some of the spine surgical treatment options at Abrazo Health:

  • Microdiscectomy – a minimally invasive procedure for removing disc material that has herniated or moved to an abnormal location, causing pressure on the spinal cord, sac of nerves, or spinal nerve roots.
  • Spinal fusion – a surgery to permanently connect two or more vertebrae in the spine, eliminating motion between them.
  • Spinal decompression (laminectomy) – a surgery that creates space by removing the back part of the vertebra that covers the spinal canal, which enlarges the spinal canal to relieve pressure on the spinal cord, sac of nerves, or nerve roots.
  • Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty – a minimally invasive surgical procedure to stabilize a spinal compression fracture.
  • Spine fracture and spinal cord injury – non-invasive, minimally invasive or invasive procedures to decompress and stabilize spinal fractures and treat spinal cord injury.
  • Deformity spinal surgery – surgery involving both spinal fusion and instrumentation to improve the alignment of the spine for those with scoliosis or kyphosis.
  • Spine cancer surgery – surgery for decompressing the spinal cord and nerves and stabilizing the spine.
  • Anterior Cervical Surgery – surgery for decompressing the cervical spinal cord or nerves through the front of the neck.
  • Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery – surgery performed with specialized instruments and techniques.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery can result in fewer complications, quicker recover time, lower risk of infection, smaller incisions, shorter hospital stay, and more. This is when the spine surgeon uses advanced equipment and specialized techniques to provide a less invasive alternative to traditional surgery.

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic systems can give doctors greater control and vision during surgery. Such devices like the Mazor Renaissance, O-Arm, and the Robotic Digital Microscope are used at Abrazo Arrowhead Campus and Abrazo Scottsdale Campus.

The Mazor Robotics Renaissance® Guidance System in a spine program that can improve the execution and outcomes in a wide variety of procedures, including: minimally-invasive and percutaneous degenerative repair, pedicle screw fixation for complex spinal deformity, and vertebral augmentation. It helps the spine surgeon put together a pre-operative plan by using precise imaging unique to each person.

The O-armTM system is an intraoperative 2D/3D imaging system that is designed to meet the workflow demands of the surgical environment. It can be used in variety of procedures including spine, cranial, and orthopedics.

The Robotic Digital Microscope combines state-of-the-art engineering with the latest breakthroughs in optics, video processing, and robotic automation to deliver a new operating experience.
