Artificial Disk Replacement in the Lumbar Spine

Artificial Disk Replacement in the Lumbar Spine focuses on the preservation of normal motion in the lower back, by removing the painful disc and replacing it with a prosthetic implant made of metal and plastic. Unlike a hip or knee replacement where the entire joint can be replaced, only one of the three joints present at each vertebral level is replaced. A lumbar disc replacement surgery may have a faster recovery than that other back surgeries because bone isn’t required to heal.

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion is a type of neck surgery whose goal is to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerve root and thus alleviating pain, numbness, tingling or weakness. During surgery, all or part of the damaged disc is removed, and a bone or metal graft is inserted where the damaged disc once was. A bone fusion can then grow together providing stability to the neck. A small connector may be attached to the vertebrae above and below to provide additional support.

Lumbar Microdiscectomy Laminectomy

A microdiscectomy laminectomy is a surgery wherein the lamina, or spongy tissue between the discs of the spine, and small areas of the affected vertebrae are removed. The removal will give the affected areas of the lower back room to heal itself and relax its activation. This minimally invasive procedure requires no mechanical change in the spine and is meant to help relieve symptoms of pressure in an injured disc.

Sacroiliac Joint Fusion

The sacroiliac joint is a large L-shaped joint that connects the sacrum, the part of your spine under the Lumbar region, and the ilium, the larger bones of the pelvis. This is a strong, weight-bearing, shock-absorbing, energy transfer joint on either side of the pelvis. Sacroiliac joint fusion is a minimally invasive surgery meant to stabilize the joint using implants to fuse the joint together. This will relieve pain associated with SI joint dysfunction.

Spinal Cord Stimulator

Spinal Cord Stimulator is a type of neuromodulator implant device that sends electric signals to parts of your spinal cord in an effort to disrupt the pain signals and relieve chronic pain conditions. This implant is inserted under the skin near the back. Its electrodes are then placed near or inserted into the nerves or spinal canal. Pulse strength can then be altered in consultation with your surgeon.
