Spine and neurosurgery options

Our board-certified spine doctors and dedicated neurosurgery team offer comprehensive services for advanced surgery and care, including:

Minimally invasive spine surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery uses several small incisions, rather than one long incision. Surgeons use special surgical instruments with a tiny camera to guide the procedure. These techniques offer benefits compared to traditional surgery, including:

  • Fewer scars
  • Less pain after surgery
  • Shorter hospital stay and recovery time

Reconstructive surgery of the spine

Our surgeons perform reconstructive surgery to straighten the spine and relieve pressure on the spinal cord and spinal nerves. Types of reconstructive surgery include:

  • Spinal fusion to permanently join two or more vertebrae
  • Spinal disk replacement to replace a diseased disk with an artificial one

Reconstructive spinal surgery can treat problems in the different regions of the back, including:

  • Cervical (neck)
  • Thoracic (upper back)
  • Lumbar (lower back)
  • Sacral (tailbone)

Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty repairs compression fractures in the vertebrae, which can be caused by osteoporosis (weakening of the bones). This procedure uses a balloon to restore the correct shape of the vertebra. Then, your surgeon injects a special bone cement into the vertebra to reinforce it.

Laminectomy

This type of surgery removes the lamina (part of a vertebra) or bone spurs in your spine to treat spinal stenosis. A laminectomy widens the spinal canal to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves.
