About MISS

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) utilizes specialized tools and smaller incisions to perform the procedure. When compared to traditional spine fusion surgery, MISS presents several benefits, such as enhanced mobility and flexion extensions. One of the primary advantages of MISS is that the procedure causes less tissue damage and scarring due to the smaller incisions used. This approach helps maintain muscle and soft tissue function in the affected area while also minimizing damage to surrounding tissue and structures.

Bulging Disc

A disc bulges when the outer layer of a vertebral disc swells outward and places pressure on the surrounding nerves and structures. Although a bulging disc is similar to a herniated disc, it is different in that the inner material has not seeped out through the outer layer of the disc. A bulging disc will usually occur in the lower back or the neck, but may also very rarely be found in the mid back.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are felt in the lower arms and hands. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, pain that radiates along the nerve path, and a sensation of pins and needles. The longer the nerve remains compressed the more chance there is that permanent damaged may occur. Because of this it is important to seek treatment as soon as the condition is diagnosed.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Sharp Pain

Sharp pain, also described as shooting pain, in the ankle or foot can be the result of a sudden trauma to the area, such as dropping something heavy on the area. Other causes can include a wide variety of underlying conditions. Sharp pains can be consistent, or exacerbated by certain physical activities like walking or running. Find a solution to your pain by reaching out to a specialist from OLSS.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Tingling Or Numbness

Tingling and numbness in the foot or ankle tend to go hand in hand. The tingling is often referred to as a sensation of pins and needles, while numbness is characterized by a loss of feeling. These symptoms are often associated with sciatica, diabetes, bulging disc, herniated disc, and more. These feelings can be intermediate or chronic, and can be addressed by a dedicated surgeon from OLSS.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Stiffness

Stiffness in the foot or ankle can be very problematic, as it inhibits the ability to walk or move around comfortably. While stiffness is often associated with conditions such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, and facet joint disease, it is important to consult with a physician from OLSS to find the exact cause of the issue, and find a solution.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Burning

A burning sensation in the foot or ankle can vary in levels of severity and is can be very painful. Burning sensations are often nerve-related and can be caused by a number of conditions, including pinched nerve and sciatica, though someone experiencing a burning sensation in the foot or ankle should speak with a qualified physician to find out the root of the problem.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Muscle Ache

Muscle aches are very common; some will dissipate in a matter of hours, while others last for months. The leading causes of muscle pain in the foot or ankle are overuse of muscles, tension, stress, or injuries. Regardless of the source of your muscle ache, you might feel a tender, throbbing, or stiff sensation in the foot or ankle, and will want to consult with a physician about the issue if it is persistent.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Weakness

Weakness in your foot or ankle is characterized by limpness or lack of strength in the area, and can make movements like walking or running difficult. Weakness in the foot or ankle can be caused by a number of conditions, including sciatica and spinal injury. If you’re experiencing weakness in the ankle or foot, OLSS may be able to help you.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Other

Symptoms may be hard to define or pinpoint. If you are experiencing multiple of these symptoms or a symptom that isn’t listed here, you can discuss your symptoms in more specificity with a physician at OLSS.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Coccydynia

Coccydynia is a medical term for the pain caused when you sit down abruptly placing too much pressure on your coccyx and damaging it. Damage to the coccyx is difficult to heal and sometime will not heal completely. Because this bone is not needed in our body, sometimes it is easiest just to remove it to alleviate the pain from a traumatic fall if conservative treatment methods fail.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease refers to spinal degeneration occurring as we age. It's really not a disease but a set of circumstances that leads to the breakdown of the vertebral disc and surrounding structures. Degenerative disc disease usually starts to show itself as we age and the stresses we have put on our back over the years start to take their toll.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Disc Tear

A disc tear usually happens when there is a combination of disc degeneration and trauma to a vertebral disc. When a disc tear occurs the inner disc material pushes into the tear creating a form of disc herniation. Occasionally the material will pass completely through the outer layer of the vertebral disc leading to a full disc herniation.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Dysplasia

A condition where the hip joint socket is abnormally shallow predisposing the labrum and cartilage to abnormal wear and tear and early arthritis.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Facet Joint Disease

Facet joint disease is a condition that occurs in the spine and develops over many years as the facet joints begin to break down through every day wear and tear. The facet joint can become painful with a single traumatic episode. Facet joint disease is more commonly found in the areas of the spine where there is more movement (bending and flexing). It usually occurs in the neck or lower back.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Failed Surgery Syndrome

Failed back or neck surgery occurs when a previous surgery has failed to provide results that would reduce or completely alleviate the patients back pain. Failed back and neck surgery is often a result of improper diagnosis, failed fusion, or lack of experience on the operating surgeons part.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Foraminal Stenosis

Foraminal stenosis refers to the narrowing of the vertebral foramen whether it be from debris or other conditions. When the foramen begins to narrow, the nerves exiting it can become compressed leading to painful symptoms that are felt in the area as well as either the arms or legs. Foraminal stenosis can occur anywhere along the spine but is most commonly observed in the neck or lower back.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Herniated Disc

A herniated disc is a vertebral disc that has broken down to the point where the inner material, called the nucleus, has seeped through the wall of the vertebral disc and causes pain in the surrounding structures or nerves. A herniated disc can occur in the lower back, the neck, and rarely in the mid back.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Hip Impingement

A disorder of the hip joint caused by bony overgrowth that results in damage to the labrum and cartilage of the hip.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Labral Tears

The labrum is a fibrocartilaginous rim of tissue that essentially deepens the socket of the hip and improves stability. If the hip pops or locks, this may be a symptom of a labral tear. If a torn labrum is unstable and flips into the joint, this may cause rapid wear and loss of cartilage.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Loose Bodies

A condition due to pieces of bone or cartilage floating around the hip joint. As the cartilage in the joint wears out, pieces of cartilage, and sometimes bone, can break off and create this condition.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Lower Back Pain

As people age, bone strength and muscle elasticity and tone tend to decrease. The lumbar discs begin to lose fluid and flexibility, which decreases their ability to cushion the vertebrae. If the spine becomes overly strained or compressed, a disc may rupture or bulge outward. This rupture may put pressure on one of the more than 50 nerves rooted to the spinal cord that control body movements and transmit signals from the body to the brain.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve is a condition that occurs when surrounding tissue or structures compress the nerve and reduces its ability to function properly. The most common places in the spine that a pinched nerve occurs are in the neck or lower back. If the lower lumbar nerves become compressed or pinched, this condition is commonly referred to as sciatica.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Radiculitis

Radiculitis is not really a condition but terminology used to describe the neurological symptoms felt as a nerve is pinched, compressed, irritated, or inflamed. Although it is true that radiculitis can affect any nerve traveling out from the spine, it is most commonly seen in the lower back or the neck.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Radiculopathy

Radiculopathy is a term that refers to nerve problems that have been left untreated in the spine. The problems are considered chronic and can be observed in any section of the spine, but are most commonly seen in the lower back or neck.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a condition where the sciatic nerve has become compressed by another underlying spinal condition. Sciatica is a condition that will affect the lower back, with symptoms being felt through the buttocks, down the legs, and into the feet.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Shoulder Arthritis

Arthritis in the shoulder is caused when the joint that holds the shoulder blade socket and the ball of the arm bone together has become damaged or the cartilage has begun to wear out. Arthritis in the shoulder is quite painful and will get progressively worse if treatment is not sought out.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Shoulder Tendonitis

Shoulder tendonitis occurs when there is inflammation around the rotator cuff tendons of the shoulder joint. The two most common causes of shoulder joint tendonitis are sports injury, where there is low impact repetitive damage to the affected area, or a sudden trauma to the shoulder.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Snapping Hip Syndrome

This condition is often painful and is caused by rubbing of a tendon around the hip joint over a bony surface.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Spinal Bone Spurs

A spinal bone spur is a bone growth that has been formed as the body has tried to heal another problem. While not all spinal bone spurs will become problematic, when they do, the pain and other symptoms can become quite intense at times. A spinal bone spur can develop anywhere along the spine, but are most often problematic in the lower back and neck.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the space in the spinal canal that is reserved for the spinal cord and the nerves that exit this area. When this area becomes narrowed, it places pressure on the spinal cord and surrounding nerves leading to neurological symptoms. They might experience buttocks pain, cramps in legs, difficulty walking, and even sciatica. Sometimes the back and leg pain are made better when leaning forward and walking such as leaning on a shopping cart. Spinal stenosis is most commonly observed in the lower back and the neck but occasionally presents in the middle back as well.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Spondylolisthesis

Spondylolisthesis occurs when there is vertebral slippage that has occurred in the spine. This means that a vertebra in the spine has slipped forwards or backwards onto an adjacent vertebra. Spondylolisthesis can occur anywhere along the spine but is most commonly observed in the lower back and the neck.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Synovitis

Inflammation of the hip lining tissue causing swelling, large collections of fluid within the joint, pain, and pressure.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Tingling Or Numbness

Tingling or numbness usually presents in more serious spine conditions. The partial or complete loss of feeling to one or all of your extremities is usually caused by pressure being placed on the corresponding nerve. This pressure can be caused by conditions such as herniated discs, sciatica, and a host of other conditions.

Your answers will be sent to a highly trained patient advocate, who will share the information with our world-renowned surgical experts.

Trochanteric Bursitis

This is a condition where the bursa (fluid-filled sack) around the hip joint becomes inflamed, commonly due to a tendon rubbing over the outside portion of the hip bone.
