Minimally invasive microdiscectomy involves the removal of a disc herniation that is pressing on nerve roots or the spinal cord.
Minimally invasive laminotomy and foraminotomy enlarges the tunnel wherein the nerve travels and decompresses the pressure in the vertebral canal.
Lumbar Decompression, Fusion & Instrumentation is performed to relieve debilitating pain and pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves in the lower back. After decompression, instrumentation is placed to stabilize the spine and relieve pain.
Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (XLIF) is a minimally invasive procedure performed through the side of the body to treat spinal disorders and reduce long-term back or leg pain that has not responded to other treatments, such as steroid injections, physical therapy and pain medication.
Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) is a type of spinal fusion that utilizes an anterior (front – through the abdominal region) approach to fuse the lumbar spine bones together. ALIF is favored for collapsed disc spaces and to restore harmonious lumbar curvature.
Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) is a contemporary approach to spinal fusion surgery. TLIF is performed to decompress and stabilize the nerve root compression that causes debilitating pain.
Revision Surgery may be needed for anyone that has previously undergone lumbar spine surgery and continues to have symptoms that interfere with their daily life.
Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) device is surgically placed under your skin and sends a mild electric current to your spinal cord. Thin wires carry current from a pulse generator to the nerve fibers of the spinal cord. When turned on, the SCS stimulates the nerves in the area where your pain is felt.
