There are several reasons you may need back surgery. They can include the relief of pain or pressure on the nerves in your back, the stabilization of your spine or the realignment of your spine. Our surgeons use the latest operative procedures and techniques to treat spinal conditions.
Discectomy—this surgery is performed to remove a herniated portion of the lumbar disc to relieve pain caused by the disc pressing against a nerve.
Lumbar and cervical anterior fusion—spinal fusion is the joining of two or more vertebrae into one single structure with the goal of stopping the movement between the two bones and preventing back pain.
Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion—this procedure treats spinal instability or weakness by permanently uniting bones of the lumbar (lower) spine.
Microdiscectomy—used to relieve the pressure on a spinal nerve root by removing the material causing the pain.
Scoliosis treatment—this surgery is done if scoliosis (curvature of the spine) gets worse and bracing is either not feasible or not working for the individual.
T bar—there are many different types of devices used to stabilize and hold the back in position after surgery: the T bar is one of those devices.
