MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE SURGERY

TYPES OF MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE SURGERY

laminectomy

A laminectomy is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves by removing a portion of the vertebral bone called the lamina. This surgery is often recommended for conditions such as spinal stenosis or herniated discs when conservative treatments fail to alleviate symptoms.

MICRODISCECTOMY

A microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat a herniated disc in the spine by removing a small portion of the damaged disc material pressing on a nerve. This procedure aims to alleviate symptoms such as leg pain, numbness, or weakness caused by the compressed nerve root.

SPINAL FUSION

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure that involves joining two or more vertebrae together to stabilize the spine and reduce pain caused by movement between the vertebrae. It is commonly performed for conditions such as degenerative disc disease, spinal instability, or spinal fractures.

artificial disc replacement

Artificial disc replacement surgery is a procedure aimed at treating degenerative disc disease in the spine by replacing a damaged or deteriorated disc with an artificial implant. Unlike traditional spinal fusion surgery, artificial disc replacement preserves motion in the spine, offering patients a potentially quicker recovery and a more natural range of motion.
