Spine surgery

Our spinal doctors and surgeons use advanced surgery procedures. Some of the surgical spine treatments they offer include:

  • Cervical surgery is performed-usually on an elective basis-to treat nerve/spinal cord issues (using decompression surgery) or spinal instability (using fusion surgery)
  • Discectomy surgery removes abnormal disc material that presses on a nerve root or the spinal cord causing pain or weakness
  • Laminectomy surgery enlarges the spinal canal to relieve pressure on the spinal cord
  • Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive surgery to treat spinal compression fractures, usually caused by osteoporosis

We also offer minimally invasive robotic surgery for some spinal issues. This option leads to reduced pain, scarring and recovery time for qualifying patients.

Before your surgery

We are committed to making you feel at ease before your procedure. To achieve this goal, we offer a preoperative education class before your upcoming surgery. This class will prepare you and your family or support person for your surgical experience and recovery process. The class is held every Wednesday morning at 9:30 a.m.

For more information, or to register for our preoperative education class, call (941) 342-3381.
