Spinal Surgery Procedures

Correct Spinal Damage With Minimally Invasive Surgery

There are a number of different things that can cause spinal pain: a sports injury, a slip and fall accident, automobile accident or deterioration from aging. Regardless of the cause of the pain, chronic spinal pain can be unbearable and may lead to irreversible damage if left untreated. If you are suffering from chronic spinal pain, the compassionate spinal surgeons of miVIP can help you.

Here at miVIP, we utilize minimally invasive surgical procedures to treat spinal injuries that may result in a quicker and less painful recovery time for our patients.

Common Spinal Surgery Procedures

Our minimally invasive spinal surgery procedures may correct many different types of spinal injuries, including:

  • Cervical Fusion: When two different segments of vertebrae are fused together in order to alleviate motion-induced pain.
  • Spinal Discectomy: When pressure is relieved from the nerves by removing bone spurs or herniated discs.
  • Neuroplasty: When scar tissue is removed and damaged nerves are repaired.
  • Lumbar Fusion: When the vertebrae in the lower spine are immobilized in order to prevent increased inflammation and irritation of the area.
  • Spinal Decompression: One of the common minimally invasive spinal surgery procedures utilized to decrease pressure on the spinal cord.
  • Foraminotomy: The strategic removal of certain sections of bone in order to relieve pressure on the nerves and decrease pain.
  • Laminectomy: When parts of the vertebrae are removed surgically in order to give the nerves more space.
  • Spinal Fusion: When two or more of the vertebrae are permanently fused together in order to eliminate spinal motion and decrease pain.

Conditions Treated

We offer a variety of minimally invasive spinal surgery procedures to treat many different types of spinal conditions, including:

  • Herniated Disc: Damage (bulging or breaking) of one of the discs in the spine.
  • Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the open spaces around the spine, which causes increased pressure on the nerves and spinal cord.
  • Spondylolisthesis/spondylosis: The slippage of one vertebra onto the vertebra located beneath it.
  • Scoliosis: Excessive curvature of the spine due to a deformity. This condition may be treated effectively with one of our minimally invasive spinal surgery procedures.
  • Kyphosis (Scheuermann’s Disease): Excessive curvature of the upper back. This condition is also referred to as “roundback”.
  • Spinal Instability: Abnormal movement between the vertebrae.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease: Pinched nerve roots due to disc degeneration.
  • Spinal Fracture: Fracture caused by falls or other trauma.
  • Spinal Cord Injury: Injury caused by trauma.
  • Bulging Disc: Damage to the disc that may remove it from its normal spinal position.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: Bone erosion and joint deformity that results in painful swelling.
  • Neuralgia: Changes in nerve structure or function that result in nerve pain.
  • Nerve Root Compression: Tingling, pain, weakness, or numbness due to excess pressure on a nerve.
  • Sciatica: Sciatic nerve pain which begins in the lower back and radiates down one or both legs.

Symptoms of Spinal Injuries

  • Loss of appetite
  • Painful joints
  • Loss of hair
