Patients often worry about treatment when it comes to spinal conditions. Will there be side effects? How is the procedure performed? Obtaining useful information about possible treatments can help you better understand and prepare for your doctor’s appointment.

  • Cervical Fusion
    Cervical fusion is a surgical operation that permanently connects two or more of the vertebrae in your neck. The surgery can be completed through an incision in the back of the neck (posterior) or an incision in the front of the neck (anterior).
  • Dynamic Interlaminar Stabilization of the Lumbar Spine
    This is a procedure that helps stabilize the spine and removes pressure from discs and joints that are damaged without having to perform a fusion. When spinal fusion is performed, the spine is no longer flexible at the point where the bones are fused together.
  • Cervical Disc Replacement
    Cervical disc replacement surgery involves removing a damaged or diseased bone in the neck (cervical) area of the spine and replacing it with one made of plastic or other surgical materials.
  • Lateral Lumbar Fusion
    ateral lumbar fusion is a surgical procedure which is performed due to leg and back pain. The goal of the procedure is to remove pressure from the spinal canal by fusing together the vertebrae which lie above and below the damaged disc.
  • Injections
    An injection is a way of getting medicine or other fluids into the body by a method other than the digestive system. In the United States injections into the subcutaneous layer of skin or the muscle are often called "shots" and in UK English the are often referred to as "jabs."
  • Spine Surgery
    Why do you need back surgery? Research shows that, most of the time, back pain resolves without treatment, and that spine operations are rarely necessary. So why do you need back surgery?
  • Spinal Tumors Surgery
    Advances in medical technology have made it possible, using improved techniques and instruments, to perform spinal tumor surgery to remove tumors that once were considered inoperable.
  • Herniated Disk Surgery
    Herniated disc surgery may be recommended by your physician if your pain and other symptoms caused by a herniated or bulging disc are not getting better despite attempts to treat the condition without surgery.
  • In Situ Spinal Fusion
    Spinal fusion is not recommended for every patient diagnosed with early onset scoliosis. It stops the growth in one section of the spine, so it can also prevent or slow the growth of the thorax, the part of the body that lies between the neck and the waist.
  • Hemi-epiphysiodesis
    Hemi-epiphysiodesis is a surgical procedure that is performed to try to correct a spinal curvature. By stopping the abnormal growth on one side of the spine, it is hoped that as the opposite side continues to grow, the curve will be corrected.
  • Hemivertebra Resection
    Sometimes scoliosis in young children is caused by misshapen vertebrae. Vertebrae are usually shaped like a rectangle. A vertebra shaped like a triangle is called a hemivertebra.
  • Spinal Deformity Surgical Treatment
    To correct a spinal deformity, surgery is sometimes recommended. Doctor’s make the decision to recommended surgery to correct spinal deformities, such as scoliosis or kyphosis, based on several different conditions.
  • Growth Friendly Surgery
    Spinal fusions used to be the most typical treatment for childhood scoliosis. Now we know that when the thoracic section of the spine is fused early in life, the growth and development of the lungs is limited as well as the growth of the spine.
  • Fusion with Instrumentation Surgery
    A physician may recommend fusion with instrumentation surgery for a child with scoliosis if the child is almost finished growing or if the child has other medical problems that make growth-friendly procedures too dangerous.
  • Smith-Peterson (Posterior) Osteotomy
    The Smith-Peterson osteotomy is a surgical procedure used to correct spinal curvatures. The spine is limited in its ability to bend backward by two joints between each vertebrae known as facet joints.
  • Spinal Decompression Surgery
    Spinal decompression surgery is a broad term that includes several different procedures used to relieve the signs and symptoms caused by compression or pressure on the nerve roots or spinal cord.
  • Diskectomy
    A discectomy is a surgical operation done on your spine to relieve the symptoms of a herniated or bulging disc. When a spinal disc herniates, the protruding portion of it can pinch or compress the nerves around it.
  • Laminectomy/Laminotomy
    Your spine consists of vertebrae, all stacked in a column, called the spinal column. The vertebrae are a unique shape, and their job is to hold the body upright and to protect the spinal cord, which runs through them.
  • Foraminotomy
    The words foraminotomy and foraminectomy are two words that can be used to explain the same kind of surgical procedure. The foreman is the tunnel or passage between each of the spinal vertebrae through which the nerve roots leave the spinal canal on their way to a particular organ or tissue in the body.
  • Laminoplasty
    If the spinal canal is narrowed, such as in the case of spinal stenosis, the spinal cord and the nerves can become pinched or compressed. This causes irritation, pain and can lead to other serious complications. A laminoplasty is a surgical procedure that makes more room in the spinal canal for the nerves and the spinal cord.
  • Corpectomy
    Cervical corpectomy surgery is an operation that is completed in order to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves and the spinal cord in the neck area. The upper portion of the spine is known as the "cervical."
  • Surgery for Osteophytes of the Spine
    Osteophytes are bone spurs, and the procedure to remove them is called an osteophytectomy or osteophyte surgery. Most of the time bone spurs do not cause severe pain, and many people who have them are not even aware of them.
  • Kyphoplasty
    Kyphoplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed to treat compression fractures of the vertebrae. Compression fractures occur when bones that have become thin, brittle and fragile collapse.
  • Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF)
    ALIF, or Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion, is an operation on the spine. It is used to treat problems like disc degeneration, spinal instability, and spinal curvatures.
  • Spine Surgery Overview
    If you have had back pain for awhile, you may wonder if spine surgery is the only thing that may help you. In some cases, spine surgery is the only option. But there's good news. Most back disorders can be helped with treatments that don't involve spine surgery.
  • Herniated Disc Treatment overview
    Herniated disc treatment often depends the symptoms produced by the condition. A herniated disc occurs when the gel-like center of the disc breaks through its fibrous, outer shell. This can cause symptoms like pain and abnormal sensations in the legs or arms. Symptoms depend on where the herniation occurs.
  • Spinal Stenosis treatment
    Spinal stenosis is a condition that happens when the spaces in your backbone (vertebrae) become narrowed. When this occurs, your spinal cord and its nerves can get pinched. More than 50% of the time, spinal stenosis affects the lumbar spine, which is the lower part of the back.
  • Inversion treatment of Low Back Pain
  • Sciatica treatment
    Sometimes specialists that provide sciatica treatment define sciatica as pain in the gluteal and lower area of the back. The pain travels into one or both legs, moving from the thigh into the calf, and then into the ankle and the foot.
  • Scoliosis Surgery
    Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves in a sideways direction. Some curving of the spine is normal, but if the curves are too exaggerated, the condition can cause pain and other complications.
  • Interspinous Spacers
    Interspinous spacers are devices that are inserted in the spine to help treat narrowing or stenosis. Find a doctor on our website that is located near you.
  • Pediatric chiropractics
    Not only adolescents suffer from pain and discomfort in the spinal area. Small children are also sometimes diagnosed with various locomotor apparatus disorders. Pediatric chiropractic is gentle exposure methods suitable for children of different age.
