Today, spine care specialists and surgeons can perform a variety of minimally invasive spine surgery procedures on all areas of the spine, including the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral areas. Some of the most common procedures include but are not limited to:
Minimally invasive spine surgical procedures also offer treatments for microsurgical treatment of herniated discs, lumbar spinal stenosis, spinal fusion, scoliosis, compression fractures, osteoporosis, and in the treatment of spinal tumors, vertebral fractures and more.
Artificial disc replacement (ADR) is the process through which an artificial structure replaces the defective or damaged disc in the spinal column, providing support, cushioning and improvement in mobility for spinal surgery patients.
Laminectomy or laminotomy are common procedures performed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord. In many cases, aging of the spinal structure causes of thinning of the vertebra, especially the portion called the lamina, which protects the spinal cord. A laminectomy removes this lamina and also is used to address thickening tissue that narrows the spinal canal and causes compression of spinal nerves.
A discectomy involves the removal of herniated disc tissues that press on nerves or other portions of spinal cord. This type of procedure is very effective for individuals who have tried other options without relief and who experience and suffer from severe pain and difficulty walking, sitting, and other basic movements.
