Common Surgical Treatment Options
This surgery is used to treat conditions including disc herniation, sciatica, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis. The above illustration of lumbar laminectomy shows how it relieves pressure in the lumbar spine.
This surgery is used to eliminate abnormal motion of the vertebrae. It involves joining two or more vertebrae by grafting bone and/or using instruments such as screws and rods to provide spinal support.
Cervical Disc Arthroplasty
This involves removing a damaged disc and replacing it with an artificial disc, typically metal implants, which allows for motion between the two vertebrae and avoids the need for a fusion.
