Spine Surgery

If you’ve been treated for a spine condition using non-surgical methods such as physical therapy, pain medication or bracing, and have not found relief, you may need spine surgery. 

The spine & pain management center team includes experienced, fellowship-trained neurologic and orthopedic spine surgeons with expertise in all types of surgical spine procedures including:

• Complex spinal reconstruction
• Deformity correction (adult)
• Discectomy 
• Foraminotomy
• Fusion (single and multi-level)
• Laminectomy/laminoplasty
• Minimally invasive techniques
• Spinal cord stimulation
• Tumor removal

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
With minimally invasive techniques, surgeons are able to reduce the amount of trauma around the incision. Care is taken to limit damage to surrounding back muscles, tendons and blood vessels—all of which positively impacts your recovery period and success.  Potential advantages include:
• Less damage to back muscles
• Less pain
• Less infection risk
• Faster recovery
• Increased back stability after surgery
• Reduced hospital stay

Correcting Adult Spinal Deformity
Spinal deformities such as scoliosis may respond to conservative treatment, like physical therapy and bracing, which can slow down the progression of spinal curving, or may need surgery to stop worsening deformity and return the spine to a more normal state.
