Lumbar (Back) Procedures

  • Minimally invasive lumbar discectomy (microdiscectomy)

disc bulge pressing on nerve

The most common cause of sciatica is a bulge on one of the discs in your spine that presses on a nerve in your lower back. If the pain does not settle, your surgeon can remove the bulge. For more information about the benefits and risks of a lumbar microdiscectomy, click here.

 

  • Minimally invasive lumbar decompression (microdecompression)

spinal stenosisSpinal stenosis causes pain or weakness in your legs. If your symptoms are severe, a spinal decompression operation should relieve your symptoms and help you to return to normal activities. For more information about the benefits and risks of a lumbar spinal decompression, click here.

 

  • Lumbar laminectomy

removal of lamina to treat canal narrowing

Lumbar spinal stenosis is where the spinal canal narrows in your lower back. This may cause pain or weakness in your legs. The aim of surgery is to prevent your symptoms from getting worse. For more information about the benefits and risks of a lumbar laminectomy, click here.

 

 

 

Cervical (Neck) Procedures

  • Cervical Foraminotomy

foraminotomyThis is a minimally invasive procedure that relieves nerve root compression by widening the intervertebral foramen, the space through which the spinal nerve exits the spinal column. Read more here.

 

 

  • Cervical Laminoplasty

cervical laminoplasty

Cervical laminoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes pressure from the spinal cord by creating more space in the spinal canal. Read more here.
