Our Spine Care Procedures


Cervical Disc Replacement

Herniated, ruptured or damaged discs in your cervical spine can cause immense pain. Cervical disc replacement may be the solution to your neck or back pain.

Artificial Disc Replacement

Damaged or deteriorated discs in your spine can trigger severe pain and result in limited mobility. An artificial disc replacement can replace the damaged disc, imitate normal disc functions and relieve pain.

Spinal Fusion

Spinal fusion is a type of surgery in which two vertebrae are fused together in order to provide stability, reduce flexibility in the affected area of the spine, and provide overall relief for chronic pain.

Laser Spine Surgery

Laser spine surgery is a minimally invasive treatment option for patients suffering from pain caused by a variety of spine conditions, including sciatica, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, or bone spurs.

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation is a type of neurostimulation therapy for patients experiencing persistent pain in the neck, back, arms or legs, which delivers mild electrical pulses to the nerves along the spinal column in order to interfere with or block nerve activity and minimize the sensation of pain reaching the brain.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery refers to any minimally invasive surgical procedure that specifically focuses on the spine through smaller incisions than traditional “open” back surgery.

Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

This procedure is used to fuse discs in the treatment of lower back and leg pain. By entering through the abdomen, back muscle and nerves are left untouched and a larger implant can be used allowing for better initial stability.

360 FUSION (ALIF & PLF)

For patients experiencing persistent pain and spinal instability, the 360 fusion (also known as an anterior/posterior lumbar fusion) offers stability by fusing together affected areas of lumbar spine to minimize the pain-causing unstable or abnormal movement.

LATERAL LUMBAR INTERBODY FUSION (XLIF & LLIF)

The minimally invasive lateral lumbar interbody fusion (XLIF or LLIF) allowes the surgeon to approach the spinal fusion from a patient’s side (lateral) instead of from the front (anterior) or back (posterior), thereby avoiding disruption of the major back muscles.

Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion

This new technique for chronic lower back and leg pain uses fusion and is also muscle sparing. The procedure is done through a small incision on the side of the abdomen. This procedure allows for greater stabilization and promotes bone healing.

SI Fusion

SI fusion is a minimally invasive procedure which fuses together the two bones linked by the SI joint at the base of the spine when the joint has deteriorated or been damaged causing pain. Fusing these bones together stabilizes the damaged joint and aims to relieve pain in the process.

Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty

Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty are two minimally invasive surgical methods to stabilize and prevent further collapse and deformity of the spinal column from fractures, a condition known as vertebral compression fracture (VCF).

Endoscopic Laminotomy

An endoscopic laminotomy alleviates lower back and leg pain caused by compressed nerves by removing part of the spinal lamina. The lamina is the bony roof of the vertebrae arch protecting the spinal cord and nerves.

Minimally Invasive Laminectomy

The minimally invasive laminectomy procedure relieves lower back and leg pain often caused by a condition called spinal stenosis by removing part of the spinal lamina. The lamina is the bony roof of the vertebrae’s arch that protects the spinal cord and nerves.

Multi-Level Disc Replacement

For patients suffering from more than one damaged spinal discs, multi-level disc replacement can provide pain relief while in the past only replace a single disc could be replaced. Spinal discs are the soft cushions between the bones of your spine, known as the vertebrae, which allow for a smooth range of motion.

Posterior Cervical Decompression

A posterior cervical decompression is a minimally invasive spine surgery done to remove portions of the damaged or herniated disc triggering pain at the nerve.

Posterior Cervical Discectomy

A minimally invasive posterior cervical discectomy resolves cervical spine pain caused by a herniated or damaged disc through the removal of damaged disc material by a minimally invasive posterior, or rear, approach to the neck.

Anterior cervical discectomy + fusion (ACDF)

Anterior cervical discectomy + fusion (ACDF) is a combined minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove damaged or injured disc material from the spine in the neck and relieve the pain associated with compressed spinal nerves.

Microdiscectomy

A microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive spine surgery to remove portions of a damaged spinal disc in order to relieve back pain. During the procedure, only the affected portion of the disc is removed to leave the majority of the disc intact and maintain the integrity of the spine.
