Spine Surgery

If you are experiencing problems with your spine, neck, mid back or lower back that require spine surgery, then, you will need to see a spine surgeon. Depending on your problem and the degree of damage your doctor will be able to determine if you need surgery.

Some Types of Spine Surgery

• Anterior cervical discectomy

• Posterior cervical foraminotomy

• Scoliosis surgery

• Vertobroplasty

• Kyphoplasty

• Osteotomy

• Kyphosis

• Decompress lumbar laminectomy

• Lumbar laminectomy

• Lumbar fusion

• Microsurgical laminectomy

• Minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery

• Thoracoscopic treatment of scoliosis

If you are having problems with your any part of your back, know that spine surgery is only considered after all non-surgical treatments have been exhausted. Some surgeries can be treated laparoscopically and are minimally invasive surgeries that use a thin, telescope-like instrument called an endoscope that is inserted through small incisions. Connected to a tiny video camera, the endoscope projects pictures of your spine, from the inside, onto a television screen in the operating room that your surgeon uses as a roadmap while he or she is performing your surgery.

Then, small surgical instruments are passed through another small incision. After surgery, the small incisions are sutured shut and covered with surgical tape. Once they heal, the scars are barely visible.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

• A few smaller scars instead of one big scar

• Less time in the hospital

• Less pain

• Quicker recovery time

If you need surgery, you will be evaluated on an individual basis. You should ask your doctor about the treatment options that are available to you.
