About Spinal Decompression

Minimize Back Pain With Spinal Decompression

If you have been suffering from spinal nerve damage, your pain may be fully or partially relieved with the help of spinal decompression surgery. The leading spinal surgeons at miVIP are highly successful at performing minimally invasive spinal surgery procedures that may be able to relieve all or most of the symptoms caused by spinal compression.

Spinal surgery techniques have significantly improved over the years, and the minimally invasive procedures utilized by the surgeons at miVIP can treat various spine injuries while minimizing pain and recovery time.

How the Surgery Is Performed

Spinal decompression surgery may be conducted in two different ways: via laminectomy or endoscopic laminotomy. Our highly trained spinal surgeons follow similar steps for both procedures, including:

  • Creating a very small incision along the spine
  • Pulling the muscles carefully away from the spinal cord
  • Guiding a camera into the surgical site
  • Creating a small opening in the bone of the spine
  • Removing any tissues that are pressing against the spinal nerve

These minimally invasive procedures reduce scarring, bleeding, and recovery time when compared to traditional open surgery.

The Surgeons at miVIP

The spinal surgeons at miVIP are leaders in their fields and are highly qualified to perform spinal decompression surgery. Many of our highly-regarded surgeons graduated with top honors and some also serve as residents or researchers at other top-grade surgical facilities. Experience, dedication, and compassion make our surgeons some of the most respected and sought-after professionals in the field of minimally invasive spinal surgery.

What to Expect After Surgery

Many patients who receive minimally invasive spinal surgery can return to their homes on the same day that the procedure is performed, but full recovery may take them several months. Rehabilitation and prescribed medications can help patients regain mobility after their surgery and may help to speed up recovery time. For some patients, a single spinal decompression surgery is all that it takes to completely relieve their symptoms, but for others the surgery may simply keep their symptoms from worsening over time. Our capable spinal surgeons will do everything in their power to make your surgical procedure as productive for you as possible.

Cost of the Procedure

The amount that you will need to pay for your spinal surgery depends on your health insurance coverage. Before you schedule your surgery, talk with your health care provider and find out if all or part of the surgery is covered by your policy. Our patient advocates are also available to help you create a financial plan in preparation for your surgical costs.

Additional Information

Spinal decompression surgery comes with the same risks that are associated with any surgery. However, because our first-rate spinal surgeons specialize in minimally invasive surgical procedures, the risk of post-operative complications is reduced when compared with open surgery.
