A spine fusion is a surgery that is performed to link together segments of the spinal column. These segments, or vertebrae, are individual bones that stacked together become the backbone. In spine fusion surgery, the vertebrae are linked together, or fused, so that motion cannot occur between the individual vertebrae. Fusion is indicated in cases where there is abnormal motion causing instability to spine and pain causing deformity.
Micro Lumbar Discectomy & Endoscopic Miscrodiscectomy
A discectomy is performed to remove a fragment of herniated disc from the spinal canal. A herniated disc can cause pressure on the spinal nerves, the discectomy relieves that pressure. Endoscopic microdiscectomy is a similar procedure done through small incisions.
IDET - Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy
IDET, or Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy, is a procedure that is being done to treat discogenic back pain. IDET uses a probe inserted into the disc to heat the tissues within the affected disc.
Dynamic Stabilization - An Alternative to Lumber Fusion Surgery
Dynamic stabilization is a type of surgical procedure used to stabilize the lumbar spine in individuals with chronic low back pain. Dynamic stabilization is an alternative to lumbar fusion surgery. One type of dynamic stabilization commonly used is called Dynesys.
Spine surgery is not usually needed in the treatment of back pain, but for patients who cant find relief any other way, back surgery may become necessary.
