Painful spine conditions like scoliosis are treated with spinal fusion procedures. The compassionate and caring medical staff at the Center for Spine Care will not only see to it that you’re well informed about what will happen during your spinal procedure, but they’ll make sure that you receive the quality care and treatment that you expect. Our spine doctors will work to improve your quality of life and help move you toward a pain-free lifestyle. Keep reading to see some of the fusion procedures we offer here at the Center for Spine Care in Dallas.
Fusion Spine Procedures
Cervical Interbody Fusion
When a disc in the neck becomes herniated or degenerative, fusion spinal treatment is needed to fix the problem, specifically Cervical Interbody Fusion. These ruptured intervertebral discs put pressure on the surrounding nerves, which causes spine and neck pain. Our professional spine doctors will be able to help relieve your chronic neck pain with this trustworthy medical procedure. Patients may need physical therapy and medication during the healing process to ensure their spine treatment is effective.
Lumbar Interbody Fusion
Much like Cervical Interbody Fusion, Lumbar Interbody Fusion fixes back pain by removing a ruptured or herniated disc, though in this case it would be much lower in the body. Our highly trained physicians are experienced in all types of Lumbar Interbody Fusion procedures, including anterior, direct, and transforaminal. Our experienced spine doctors will use innovative technology to help relieve neck, back, and spine pain that refuses to leave through traditional rehabilitation methods.
Usually developing just before puberty, scoliosis is a spinal condition that causes the sideways curvature of the spine. The true cause of scoliosis is still unknown, but it can also be caused by other conditions such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy. As one grows, scoliosis can be quite painful and can hinder certain abilities down the road. Surgery is best as a last resort, but rest assured that our spinal surgeons are highly trained in scoliosis spinal procedures that are sure to help you relieve pain and get back to normal.
