Spine conditions we treat
Our back doctors diagnose and treat many conditions relating to the neck, spine and back, including:
- Degenerative scoliosis: Curvature of the spine caused by degeneration of joints and intervertebral discs
- Facet osteoarthritis (degenerative arthritis): Loss of the cartilage of the joints usually caused by inflammation
- Herniated discs: Painful condition, usually in the lower back, in which the center disc of cartilage in the spine bulges out
- Kyphotic deformities (humpback): Abnormal curvature of the spine
- Myelopathy: Injury to the spinal cord that may be caused by compression from trauma, congenital stenosis (narrowing of spaces between the spine), herniated discs or degenerative disease
- Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (VCF): Spinal fractures, most commonly in older patients
- Spasticity: Condition caused by brain or spinal damage that results in involuntary muscle movements
- Spinal stenosis: Condition (usually in patients 50 years old and older) caused by narrowing of the spinal canal, resulting in pain and numbness in the arms and legs
- Spondylolisthesis: Condition in which one of the vertebrae slips forward onto the bone below it
- Traumatic spinal fractures: Spinal injuries caused by high-energy impacts or "traumas"
Spine surgery options
Our surgeons are specialized in orthopedic care and will determine the best option to treat your condition. Some of those advanced spine surgeries include:
- Decompressive laminectomy: Surgery performed to relieve pressure on a spinal nerve caused by age-related spinal changes
- Discectomy: Removal of disc material that is pressing on a spinal nerve and causing pain
- Spinal fusion: Procedure to correct issues with the small bones in the spine
- Vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty: Procedures to repair compression fractures using a cement mixture and balloons
Non-surgical spine treatments
When possible, we will use non-surgical options to treat your condition. These treatments may include:
- Epidural steroid injections: Minimally invasive procedure designed to ease lower back and leg pain; steroids are injected in the epidural area using X-ray guidance
- Transforaminal injections (nerve block): Long-acting steroid injection that reduces pain and inflammation of the nerve root
- Facet blocks (joint block): An injection of numbing medicine into one or more of the small joints on the side of each vertebra on both sides of the spine in the lower part of the back
- Physical therapy: Rehabilitative care to ease pain and maintain function and mobility
- Pool therapy: Rehabilitation technique to manage pain from osteoarthritis
- Radiofrequency rhizotomy: Procedure using heat to stop or reduce pain
