Our Services

Novant Health Piedmont Neurosurgery & Spine offers you access to world-class care for nerve and spine conditions, all from a convenient location close to where you live or work. Our providers have dedicated their careers to investigating and treating conditions affecting the nervous system and spine. We are dedicated to providing both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options that both meet your treatment goals and fit your lifestyle.

Conditions we regularly treat include:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Herniated discs (also called bulging, slipped or ruptured discs; a fragment of diisc pushed into the spinal canal, causing pain or numbness)
  • Degenerative disc disease (an age-related condition in which the discs between spine segments lose cushioning or become herniated)
  • Compression fractures of the spine (a condition in which bones in the spine weaken or crumble)
  • Cervical radiculopathy (a pinched nerve in the cervical spine/neck area)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (a condition in which the median nerve from the forearm to the palm becomes compressed at the wrist)
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome (a condition in which the ulnar nerve on the inside of the elbow is injured)
  • Spondylosis (age-related wear of the spinal discs in the neck)
  • Spondylolisthesis (a condition in which vertebrae in the spine move more than they should)
  • Spinal stenosis (a condition in which spaces in the spine shrink, putting pressure on the spinal cord)
  • Lumbar radiculopathy (sciatica; a condition in which a pinched spinal nerve causes pain that radiates down one or both legs)

Surgical and nonsurgical treatments we offer include:

  • Cubital tunnel release at the elbow
  • Carpal tunnel release (open technique)
  • Lumbar epidural steroid injections
  • Spinal fusion (a procedure in which two or more vertebrae are fused to stabilize the spine)
  • Laminectomy (a procedure to relieve pressure on the nerve roots, commonly caused by spinal stenosis)
  • Cervical posterior foraminotomy (a procedure to create more space for spinal nerves compressed due to herniated or degenerative discs)
  • Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF; a procedure to remove a herniated or degenerative disc from the neck and replace it with a bone graft)
  • Anterior cervical corpectomy (a procedure to remove bone and discs from the cervical spine to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves)
