WE TREAT PEOPLE NOT PATIENTS

Several treatment options have been introduced to deal with some of the most common spine conditions. They vary based on the condition you have and the treatment method you choose. The medical field has evolved to give patients a lot of choices. Below are some of the treatments and surgeries for common spine conditions.

Aging Management Solution

As you age, your muscle mass declines — that’s a scientific fact. It declines around 3% to 8% every decade after you’ve reached the age of 30; along with this, fat mass increases. So, it’s harder to lose weight, and you start to become fatigued more easily.

Anterior Cervical Corpectomy Spine Surgery

Anterior cervical corpectomy spine surgery is a procedure that is performed to correct several different problems in the spine. This surgery is typically performed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.

More

Anterior Cervical Discectomy Surgery

Whether you’re dealing with pinched nerves or an irritated spinal disk, medical professionals can help you combat this discomfort. The sooner you act, the more likely our team can reduce your pain and preserve your full range of movement.

More

Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion

Anterior cervical discectomy with fusion (ACDF) surgery is a standard procedure to treat neck pain caused by herniated discs or degenerative disc disease. ACDF aims to relieve pressure and prevent further damage to the spinal cord.

More

Anterior Lumbar Corpectomy and Fusion

Your lumbar vertebrae support the rest of your spine. There are fewer of these vertebrae than those cervical or thoracic, but they can still substantially impact your overall comfort. If your lumbar vertebrae suffer infection or damage, you could find yourself in a significant amount of pain.

More

Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF)

Lower back pain often reduces a person’s quality of life and may make it difficult to sit, stand, or move. Sometimes, non-invasive pain management techniques can alleviate pain or mask it for a while. However, a point generally comes where patients must take additional steps to get some relief. This often includes some type of spinal fusion surgery.

More

Anti-Inflammatory Injections

Chronic back, neck, or joint pain doesn’t always require surgery. Often, pain and other symptoms can be relieved with anti-inflammatory injections. The pain relief individuals experience after an anti-inflammatory injection can last a long.

More

Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery

Artificial disc replacement surgery has become very common in recent years. The procedure involves replacing damaged discs in the spine with artificial ones. This surgery is usually performed to treat back pain caused by degenerative disc disease or other conditions.

More

Axial Fusion

This is a new and exciting tool to repair a worn disc. With a small hidden incision near the tailbone a painful worn disc can be replaced and fused. This is relatively simple and usually bloodless procedure that can fix your back. It offers a quick recovery, less pain, and minimal visible scars for a full fusion.

More

Cancer Pain Treatments

Tumors (cancer) can grow fast. They can spread to your spinal (vertebral body) and spinal canal (where your nerves are). When this happens you may experience pain, numbness, tingling and even weakness. We can stop that. Our innovative and aggressive pain control methods can help control your cancer pain.

More

Cervical Disc Arthroplasty (CDA)

Of all the surgical treatments available at Orthopedic Laser & Spine Surgery, cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA) is among the most beneficial-especially for our patients suffering from cervical disc issues and chronic neck pain. No matter your condition, you should settle for no less than the best if you need to undergo a cervical disc arthroplasty.

More

Cervical Disc Replacement

Cervical disc replacement is an amazing new technology performed to replace a damaged, herniated, or painful disc while maintaining motion in the spine. Instead of performing a traditional spinal fusion, an artificial disc is inserted to replace the old damaged disc. The new disc actually moves and is designed to not reduce any motion, a problem common in spinal fusion procedures. A cervical disc replacement surgery is performed in an outpatient setting with little to no blood loss. After the surgery there is no need for a neck brace and patients are even encouraged to move their neck immediately following the procedure.

More

Coccygectomy

A coccygectomy is performed to treat coccyx or tail bone pain. Often when the tail bone or coccyx is broken or damaged it never completely heals. Since the body does not actually need the coccyx, a coccygectomy is performed to remove it. This procedure is designed to permanently correct your problem and reduce or eliminate your pain.

More

Degenerative Disk Disease Surgery

Around 40% of adults over 40 have a minimum of one degenerated vertebral disc. Approximately 80% of adults will have one by the age of 80. Disc degeneration is a normal aging process like gray hair and skin wrinkles. However, unlike wrinkles, discs that have lost strength and volume can lead to various issues, including back and neck pain.

More

Endoscopic Discectomy

A very small incision is used to allow surgeons access to the affected area. The disc material is removed safely through a painless laser procedure or a very small grasper/biter. The technique is simple and bloodless under our expert hands. Only a very light sedation or anesthesia is utilized in conjunction with lidocaine and marcaine as local anesthetics. Patients are comfortable throughout the procedure and are able to go home the same day. They can generally return to normal activity in a few weeks.

More

Endoscopic Foraminotomy

An endoscopic foraminotomy is performed to remove debris from a clogged foramen. By removing the debris, a compressed nerve is released and painful symptoms are relieved. An endoscopic foraminotomy is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient being encouraged to walk following the procedure. Recovery time is minimal and most people are back to work within the week.

More

Epidural Steroid Injection

An epidural injection is used to block pain caused by nerve impingement. The result is temporary but often used in conjunction with conservative treatment methods to provide short term pain relief. If therapy fails to correct the condition, other treatment should be pursued.

More

Extreme Lateral Interbody Fusion (XLIF)

A minimally-invasive surgical procedure, extreme lateral interbody fusion (XLIF), was developed as an alternative to traditional spine surgeries in order to effectively lessen postoperative complications and patient recovery time. During the operation, surgeons access the spinal cord through a small incision on the side of the body, allowing them to avoid damaging any back muscles.

More

Facet Ablation or Rhizotomy

Using advanced laser treatment has been shown to be more effective to stop facet mediated pain. A facet ablation or rhizotomy is a procedure performed to remove the sensory nerves that cause pain. These are the nerves that send signals to the brain telling it your back hurts. The laser essentially cuts that connection. No transmission, no pain. The procedure is quick, simple, blood less, outpatient and safe. We helped to co-invent it.

More

Facet Block

For over 50 years doctors have been performing facet blocks to treat facet mediated pain. With the addition of stem cells the blocks now are potentially “a lot more powerful” and more likely to leave you pain free. Stem cells can be harvested safely and painlessly from your body and then used in the facet block procedure to create a much more powerful and lasting nerve block.

More

Facet Fusion

A facet fusion procedure is the most reliable form of treatment for facet pain. The procedure is performed to permanently cure facet mediated pain. A spacer is placed into the facet joint to stabilize it and stop the joint from rubbing on the nerve, and thus stops the pain. This is a simple outpatient procedure with a quick recovery; most patients are back to work within a week.

More

Fusion vs Disc Replacement

Cervical Fusion Surgeries have long been the standard treatment for many serious conditions of the neck. However, traditional fusions are outdated due the number of risks, extensive recovery time and substantial cost.

More

Hip Arthroscopy

Arthroscopic procedures on the hip allow a surgeon uses a small optical device to view and work on the hip joint with a minimally invasive technique.

More

Hybrid Lumbar Spine Surgery

Some spine injuries result in damage to the discs, and they need to be repaired or replaced for you to get back to a pain-free life. The best course of treatment may be a hybrid lumbar spine surgery, where we combine a tried and proven lumbar fusion technique with artificial disc replacements.

More

Impar Ablation

An impar or Radiofrequency ablation procedure is performed to reduce or eliminate coccyx or tail bone pain. Radiofrequency burning of the nerves responsible for coccyx pain is safe and effective. This is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure, with no blood loss and is relatively painless.

More

Impar Block

An impar block is an injection of medication that numbs and blocks pain signals from a damaged nerve in the coccyx or tailbone area of the spine. The results are temporary and as such an impar ablation is usually required for more permanent solutions. Find out more information on impar and radiofrequency ablation here.

More

Interlaminar Spacer

Interlaminar spacers, like X-stop (Medtronic) and ILIF (NuVasive), can help treat central and foraminal stenosis minimally invasively in some instances. The spacer is surgically inserted at the affected segment of the spine to hold it in a degree of flexion and provide a larger area in the spine, relieving the stenosis. This removes the pressure from the nerves and reduces or eliminates the pain and symptoms completely.

More

Kyphoplasty Surgery

Kyphoplasty is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that helps stabilize the spine and fix the abnormal collapse of the bones caused by a vertebral compression fracture. Osteoporosis and metastatic cancer—a type of cancer that spreads from one part of the bone to another—are most commonly the cause of these fractures. Kyphoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia and takes about an hour.

More

Lumbar Disc Replacement

It seems like everyone has to contend with some degree of lower back pain these days. Sedentary lifestyles can lead to persistent lower back pain, particularly if you don’t take regular stretching breaks.

More

Lumbar Fusions

Lumbar fusion treatments are designed to help patients who have been contending with long-term pain. If you’ve been struggling to overcome a stiff spine or significant daily discomfort, you can discuss whether or not this treatment may be in your best interest.

More

Lumbar Laminectomy Surgery

Arthritis of the spine can lead to pressure on the spinal cord and other nerves that impede their function. If you are experiencing issues such as pinched nerves, difficulty sitting, or you have arthritis of the spine, you may need a lumbar laminectomy surgery. This surgery removes small parts of the spine along your back, specifically bone spurs if they exist, to take the pressure off.

More

Lumbar Microdiscectomy Surgery

If you have a herniated disc and it is causing pain or other problems, your doctor may recommend a lumbar microdiscectomy. This is a procedure to help relieve the problems caused specifically by herniated discs.

More

Lumbar Microendoscopic Discectomy Surgery

Surgery is, by its very definition, invasive. Every surgery requires a level of invasiveness to be effective. However, the negative impacts on the body can be minimized with the help of new technology.

More

Microdiscectomy

A microdiscectomy is a type of minimally invasive spinal surgery to remove any disc material that is pressing on a nerve root or spinal cord. The incision necessary in a microdiscectomy is a little larger than that of an endoscopic discectomy, but smaller than traditional open back discectomy. A microdiscectomy can be performed as an outpatient procedure, with most patients being discharged on the same day of the procedure. It is very rate that a patient may be required to stay overnight stay in the hospital.

More

Motion Preservation Spine Surgery

Motion preservation surgery is a non-invasive procedure used to treat patients with spine conditions. These conditions may also be referred to as degenerative disc diseaseherniated disc, or pinched nerve. If you’re looking for information about motion preservation spine surgery, here is information on the benefits of this procedure and what you should expect from it.

More

Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLIF)

Back pain is one of the most debilitating and pervasive conditions people can experience. Oftentimes, doctors will prescribe pain management techniques to help. However, sometimes these pain management techniques are not enough, and the pain will continue to interrupt a person’s daily activities and may even reduce their quality of life.

More

Percutaneous Carpal Tunnel Release

We perform an outpatient percutaneous release of the pinched median nerve. It is safe simple and allows you to return to activity almost immediately. The incision is smaller than a postage stamp, and there is no appreciable blood loss.

More

Percutaneous Discectomy

A percutaneous discectomy is the most minimally invasive technique possible used to surgically treat disc bulges, protrusions, and small contained herniated discs. There is no blood loss during the procedure and can be performed in an outpatient environment with most patients returning to work within a week.

Resurfacing Shoulder Replacement Treatment

A small incision is made and the arthritic shoulder joint is exposed. The arthritic areas are scraped away or removed and covered with an implant. The glenoid, or opposite side, sometimes is also treated with a “graft jacket” to cover it and protect it from continued wear. This surgery is generally done as an outpatient procedure with little to no blood loss. Patients may expect to be back at work performing light duties within a week. More healing is required before heavy lifting, or sports activities are to be attempted.

More

Revision Spinal Surgery

Spinal surgery can be an overwhelming process to begin with, as it often necessitates a long recovery period. Patients and surgeons alike hope for successful outcomes that reduce or eliminate back pain and increase quality of life. Unfortunately, not all back surgeries are successful. Sometimes, patients don’t get any relief from their pain or still end up struggling with mobility.

More

Spinal Fusion Surgery

If you’re experiencing back pain, know that you aren’t alone. It’s a common issue that around 80% of adults in the U.S. struggle with at some point in their lives. Fortunately, there is a treatment for it, but the type of treatment you receive will depend on what’s causing your pain. If you’re experiencing back pain because of excessive movement of your vertebrae (the bones of your spine), spinal fusion surgery may be a promising treatment option.

More

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem Cell Therapy is a procedure in which new cells are introduced directly into an injurious area or joint, promoting healing and growth. The multitude of administered cells allows the body to proceed with the healing process at an accelerated rate. This treatment has been recognized by the medical industry worldwide as the biggest medical breakthrough in natural healing. Athletes such as Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez and Peyton Manning have traveled abroad for this unique treatment. And now, SCI brings this same solution to you right here in Florida.

More

Stem Cell Treatment

Not only do stem cells shorten the time it takes to recover and heal from an injury or procedure, studies have shown that they are also able to reverse the affects of aging.

Stem cells also behave like beacons that alert the body to send its own regenerative resources to the site and reactivate the healing process in situations where the body would not have done so voluntarily.

More

TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion)

When the spine’s discs wear our there is often associated pain and collapse of that disc causing nerves to become pinched. Pain from pinched nerves or arthritis to the disc can be severe and disabling. This is a problem that can be fixed with a new approach. It is minimally invasive and we have assembled one of the top teams in the country for just this procedure.
