Non-Fusion Spine Procedures

Microdiscectomy

This procedure can be used to treat and relieve pain, weakness, numbness, and impaired function all over the body, but especially in the neck and back. Microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive procedure which only requires a small incision around the affected area. At the Center for Spine Health in Dallas, we utilize the METRx™ system, which we believe to be the most effective and reliable procedure. Schedule your microdiscectomy procedure with the Center for Spine Care at our Dallas location today and get back to feeling like yourself.

Decompression

One of our most common spine treatments, the Center for Spine Care is highly practiced with this innovative procedure. Spinal decompression is used to relieve pinched nerves as well as alleviate pain. It’s a minimally invasive procedure that helps widen spots of your spinal canal that are narrowing and causing back pain. Usually recommended after physical therapy or medication have proven ineffective, spinal decompression will get you back on your feet and feeling as good as new.

Foraminotomy

Used after conservative treatments prove ineffective, foraminotomy is used to help those suffering from cervical nerve root compression. This manifests in the form of chronic neck and shoulder pain as well as stiffness. You may be a candidate for this minimally invasive procedure if your doctor notices blockages on your spine in the form of spinal stenosis. The expert spine doctors at the Center for Spine Care will use Foraminotomy only if they believe it’s right for your particular condition. We have your best interest at heart, so contact our Dallas location today to see if foraminotomy is right for you.

Laminoplasty

This minimally invasive procedure is used to treat painful restrictions of the spinal canals in the neck, specifically around the cervical spine. Laminoplasty creates space within the spinal canal to relieve chronic pain and get you back to feeling like you again. Most patients see immediate relief after the spinal procedure. Contact the Center for Spine Care today at our Dallas location to set up an appointment and see if laminoplasty is the right procedure to help relieve your chronic neck pain.

Our medical professionals are ready to help you get back to normal with any of our back, neck, and spine procedures. Contact our Dallas location and let our expert spine doctors take care of you.

 

Fusion Vs. Non-Fusion

Without question, spinal fusion surgery can really help some people. However, it’s not for everyone. If you have severe back pain that just won’t go away and that affects your daily life to a high degree, the benefits of fusion surgery are probably worth it. Fusion surgery might also be a good treatment for people who have fractured a vertebra — joining the fractured vertebra with the one next to it can help solve the issue. People with unstable columns may also benefit from fusion surgery. Depending on the severity of your condition, in may be better to do one of the above-mentioned procedures instead:

  • Microdiscectomy
  • Decompression
  • Foraminotomy
  • Laminoplasty

To find out if you are a good candidate for a non-fusion procedure, speak with a doctor today.
