Spinal decompression and stabilization-instrumentation surgeries are used to correct arthritis, spinal shifts and fractures of the spine and to recur in the herniated disc hernia. Cervical, thoracal, and lumbar regions frequently encounter these types of surgical applications. Spinal tumors are cervical, thoracic, lumbosacral and cervical, as well as spinal, spinal cord and metastatic tumors.
Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty spinal fractures and spinal collapse fractures, Spinal trauma surgery applications.
The scoliosis is in the backbone 'S' curvature as antagonism. Scoliosis correction surgery is a major group of long-segment operations.
Cervical applications can be performed with microsurgery and open surgery for lumbar disc herniation.
Neck hernia (cervical disc hernia) operations can be done with microsurgery and classical technique.
Effective results can also be obtained with advanced cryosurgery technique in the waist and neck hernias.
Cervical Spinal Fusion
Cervical spinal fusion (arthrodesis) is a surgery that joins selected bones in the neck. There are different methods of doing a cervical spinal fusion:
Lumbar Spinal Fusion
With several approaches to spinal fusion, your physician can determine the one that best suits your individual needs.
Not everybody with low back pain will require surgery. But if your condition is one that requires surgery, rest assured that spinal fusion has a long history as a treatment option.
A spinal fusion is the permanent joining of two or more vertebrae so that there is no movement between them. Over time they heal into a single, solid bone. The procedure involves roughening the bone between two adjacent vertebrae and then placing bone graft between them. In some cases, disc material may be replaced with donated bone, or in the case of degenerative disc disease with or without Grade 1 spondylolisthesis, plastic or metal spacers may be used instead. Rods and screws are then placed to create an "internal cast" that support the vertebrae, holding it together until the fusion, or bony regrowth, can occur.
Spine surgery involves creating a single incision and stripping the muscles from the spine. In comparison to a minimally invasive technique, the “open” method offers key benefits that include:
