Common Procedures We Perform

Spinal Fusion

Spinal fusion is where two vertebrae are fused together. The idea is to fuse together the painful vertebrae so that they heal into a single, solid bone.

Disc Replacement

This procedure involves removing the disc and replacing it with an artificial disc. An artificial disc replacement is classified into two types, total disc replacement and disc nucleus replacement. Your spine surgeon will determine whether a total disc replacement or disc nucleus replacement is necessary.

Discetomy

Discectomy involves removal of the damaged portion of a herniated disc. This procedure relieves pressure on the nerve, allowing sciatic to resolve. This can be done with a microdiscectomy or as a full discectomy.

The goal of disc replacement is to allow the spinal segment to maintain some flexibility and normal motion.

Laminectomy

A laminectomy procedure involves removing the laminas and bone spurs that are compressing the nerves.

Kyphoplasty / Vertebroplasty

A laminectomy procedure involves removing the laminas and bone spurs that are compressing the nerves.
