All minimally invasive procedures are not created equal
North American Spine works with interventional pain specialists, orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons to match the patient to the right procedure(s). Our ultimate goal is to relieve patients’ pain symptoms through the least invasive means possible. For many patients, part of a suggested treatment plan will include a minimally invasive back and neck procedure or a spine stabilization procedure.
The minimally invasive back and neck procedure utilizes a natural opening at the base of your spine to access the spinal canal. In addition to being less traumatic, this approach allows the physician to guide instruments along the length of the lumbar spine, diagnosing and treating problems in real time. The least invasive surgery available, this procedure has the ability to treat multiple levels of damage within one procedure.
The spine stabilization procedure was designed for patients whose spines need reinforced stability. Instability can cause nerve compression and damage and may occur for a number of reasons, including bulging, missing, or compromised discs, and narrowing of the spinal canal. Diseases and disorders associated with these conditions include degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, and others.
Whether the minimally invasive back and neck procedure or spine stabilization procedure is right for your unique pain, North American Spine offers options that can help you get back to a life without pain.
