Neuroplasty Procedure

Relieve Chronic Back pain With Minimally Invasive Surgery

Those who suffer from chronic back pain have difficulty participating in everyday activities, including exercise, work, leisure activities, and even sleep. If your back has been injured or if you have undergone back surgery in the past, scar tissue can develop and cause pressure on the spinal nerves. If you suffer from chronic back pain due to past surgeries or injuries, miVIP offers a minimally invasive spine surgery procedure called neuroplasty (or epidural adhesiolysis) that may reduce or eliminate your pain.

Epidural adhesiolysis can reduce strain on the epidural space located in the spinal column. The procedure works well for patients who experience the following conditions:

  • Neuralgia, which is a condition that causes spasms in the head and neck.
  • Neuropathy, which is a condition that can cause tingling, numbness, pain, and loss of motor control in the limbs.
  • Sciatica, which is a nerve issue located in the lower back that may cause spasms and pain in the legs and lower back.

How Is the Procedure Performed?

Before you receive a neuroplasty procedure, one of our leading surgeons will examine you to determine whether or not minimally invasive spine surgery is a viable option. If non-surgical treatments do not reduce your pain, or if you are not a good candidate for more invasive surgical procedures, then minimally invasive surgery may benefit you.

During neuroplasty, a catheter is inserted into the spine so that a special medication blend can be delivered to the affected area. A balloon may also be inserted and expanded within the epidural space to help widen the space and release excess pressure. Minimally invasive spine surgery can help you find relief from your pain without dealing with the painful and drawn-out recovery periods associated with more invasive procedures.

The Surgeons at miVIP

All of the surgeons at miVIP are board-certified and highly experienced in providing minimally invasive surgical procedures. They will work one-on-one with you to make sure that they fully understand your spinal injuries and will recommend a treatment method that will be most likely to alleviate your pain. Their rigorous training and expertise enable them to make compassionate and educated decisions regarding your spinal care.

What to Expect After Surgery

Following your minimally invasive spine surgery, you should expect to feel some pain and discomfort that can be managed with prescription medication. Because neuroplasty is conducted on an outpatient basis, most patients return home on the day of their surgery. Once the anesthetic wears off, most patients are soon able to walk around, although full mobility may not be achieved for weeks or months following the procedure. Physical therapy is recommended to help you recover and regain mobility as quickly as possible.

Cost of Surgery

The amount that you will be responsible to pay for your surgery largely depends on your health insurance policy. Before undergoing minimally invasive spine surgery, talk to your insurance provider about your upcoming neuroplasty and make sure you understand how much you will be responsible to pay.

Long Term Effects

Every surgery carries with it the risk of side effects and complications, but minimally invasive surgeries come with reduced risks. Once your surgery is successfully completed, you may need to receive multiple treatments over time in order to manage your pain. Many patients experience long-lasting pain reduction following their initial minimally invasive spine surgery.
