Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion
Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion is a procedure to remove a herniated or damaged disc from your cervical (neck) spine. It reduces pain, stiffness, and mobility problems by preventing your vertebrae from grinding against each other.
Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement
Artificial cervical disc replacement is a procedure to remove a damaged disc from your cervical spine and replace it with an artificial disc to cushion your vertebrae and absorb shock. The procedure also reduces pressure on your spinal cord and peripheral nerves to relieve pain.
A kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure to repair compression fractures in your spine. A surgical balloon is used to expand the compressed vertebra before filling it with special bone cement.
A laminectomy is a surgical procedure to treat spinal stenosis. During the operation, your surgeon removes part of your lamina to enlarge your spinal canal and reduce nerve compression. Depending on your specific needs, they may also remove parts of the herniated discs or repair other conditions that contribute to spinal stenosis.
Lumbar Disc Microsurgery
Lumbar disc microsurgery may be recommended if you have a herniated disc in your lumbar spine. This procedure aims to remove the herniated portion of the disc, alleviating nerve compression. This procedure reduces pain, numbness, and weakness in your back, buttocks, and legs.
Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion
During a transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion, the surgical team fuses the front and back columns of your spine using bone grafts or surgical pins and screws. This procedure may be recommended to treat conditions such as recurrent disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, or spondylolisthesis.
