Neuro Spine Surgery Q & A

What is neuro spine surgery?

Neuro spine surgery is a group of invasive treatment techniques for complications involving your brain, vertebrae, spinal nerves, and other structures in your neck or back. Your spine is especially susceptible to pain because of the high concentration of spinal nerves, which travel from your spine to every other area in your body. 

Neck or back pain is often the first indication of a spinal injury or degenerative condition, but you may have other symptoms too. 

You might feel referred pain or numbness originating in a spinal nerve in the area where it travels. For example, damage to nerves near your cervical spine in your neck can result in pain or numbness in your arms and hands. 

Preva Surgicare - Imperial Surgery Center provides safe and effective spinal surgery to alleviate pain, numbness, and weakness. They often prioritize minimally invasive techniques to reduce your chances of lasting scars and other complications. 


Which conditions does neuro spine surgery treat?

Preva Surgicare - Imperial Surgery Center specializes in the surgical treatment of various spinal conditions that can cause pain, weakness, and other symptoms originating in your spine. If you experience prolonged neck pain, back pain, or referred pain, it may be due to:

  • Sciatica
  • Spinal bone spurs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Scoliosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated disc
  • Osteoporosis
  • Spinal fractures
  • Kyphosis
  • Radiculopathy

Conditions like these are often treatable without surgery, and the team at Preva Surgicare - Imperial Surgery Center usually starts with the most conservative approaches available. If you don’t find relief through non-invasive treatments alone, they help you explore minimally invasive spinal surgeries and conventional surgical techniques.


Which forms of neuro spine surgery should I consider?

Preva Surgicare - Imperial Surgery Center offers many of the latest surgical techniques for spinal repairs, including minimally invasive options with less scarring, less recovery time, and less postoperative pain. A few of the available options are:

Minimally invasive microdiscectomy

During this surgery, your surgeon repairs a herniated or torn disc in your spine by removing part of it using small incisions and an arthroscope camera that projects an image on a monitor. 

Laminectomy

Laminectomy, also called decompression surgery, is a spinal surgery that removes part of your vertebrae to make more room in your spinal canal. 

Artificial disc replacement

Artificial disc replacement is a surgery to replace a faulty, weak, or ruptured disc with an artificial device. Your natural spinal discs maintain the height of your spine while providing cushioning and absorbing shock between vertebrae. An artificial disc replaces your natural disc to perform the same function.
