Artificial Disc Replacement
Degeneration of the spinal discs is one of the leading causes of back pain and spinal disorders. The use of artificial discs is one of the most promising surgical treatments being developed and utilized today, often providing excellent results.
Minimally Invasive Discectomy
Includes opening the back tissue, moving aside the muscle, and removing a portion of the intervertebral disc with the aim of relieving pressure on the nerves housed in the spinal column.
Anterior Cervical Discectomy, Fusion (ACDF)
A treatment utilized in the event of significant deterioration of a disc in the cervical portion of the spinal column can result in the need for its removal and replacement.
Spine Tumor Removal
Spinal tumors (benign and malignant) are a very rare and uncommon cause of back pain. The most common symptom of a spinal tumor is constant, non-mechanical back or neck pain that is unrelated to any physical activity and is not alleviated by rest.
Lumbar – Laminectomy
A lumbar laminectomy with instrumented fusion indicates a traditional lumbar laminectomy performed with the assistance of screws, cages, hooks, plates, and rods to support the spine around the surgical site.
Congenital Spine Deformities
Congenital spine deformities are disorders of the spine that develops in an individual before birth. The vertebrae do not form correctly in early fetal development and as a result, cause structural problems within the spine and spinal cord.
Posterior Lumbar Fusion - TLIF
When a patient’s spinal column has become unstable due to the ravages of degenerative disc disease, wear, and tear injury, or other causes spinal fusion may be necessary to restore stability.
