Some of the spine surgical treatment options we offer for back and neck pain include:
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.
