Pain management: Chronic pain has a way of reshaping your life, but the right treatment often can improve your quality of life. Your care team will consider traditional and minimally invasive treatments to help manage and reduce your pain.
Advanced spinal stabilization: If your spine has weakened due to compression fractures or deformity, we can perform advanced spinal stabilization techniques called kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty. These procedures are designed to help maintain the shape of your vertebra or protect vertebra from further damage after a fracture.
Minimally invasive surgery: The nerves in your spine can become irritated or otherwise disturbed when you have bone spurs or other changes in spinal health due to age or injury. Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is the name given to the condition when space becomes narrower within your spinal canal or around the nerves in your spine. A minimally invasive outpatient surgery called mild® is designed to help you stand longer and walk farther with less pain. An orthopedic physician removes bits of bone and ligament to decrease compression on the nerves. The procedure requires no anesthesia, implants or stitches.
