Back pain affects most people at some point. It’s one of the leading causes of disability and one of the leading reasons people miss work. If you have back pain, you should rest, undergo physical therapy, and try minimally invasive treatments, such as epidural injections. But if conservative solutions fail to offer the desired results, you may need spine surgery. Brand Surgical Institute offers cutting-edge minimally invasive spine surgeries to alleviate back pain and help you lead a pain-free life.
How is Back pain affecting you?
Potential causes of back pain:
- Injuries and trauma
- Muscle and ligament strains
- Disc herniation
- Degenerative disc disease
- Bone spurs
- Spinal stenosis
- Skeletal irregularities
You are the ideal candidate for spine surgery if:
- You have persistent or debilitating back pain
- You have chronic back pain lasting more than three months
- Your back pain symptoms don’t respond to conservative treatments
- You have bone spurs, damaged discs, and other conditions that cause nerve compression
- You want to address the root cause of chronic back pain
What happens during your consultation?
Brand Surgical Institute is led by highly-skilled spine surgeons specializing in the latest and most effective spine surgery techniques. During your consultation, our surgeons discuss your symptoms, gauge your range of motion, and administer numerous imaging tests, such as MRI scans, X-rays, CT scans, and nerve conduction studies. After diagnosing the root cause of back pain and ensuring that conservative treatments have failed, our surgeons curate a personalized spine surgery plan for you.
What is invasive spine surgeries?
Brand Surgical Institute provides minimally invasive spine surgery in Glendale. Unlike traditional spine surgeries, minimally invasive techniques involve making extremely small incisions. The surgeon may use an endoscope (a long tube with a camera) to visualize the internal structure of the spinal canal, and they may use specialized instruments to make the necessary adjustments. Since the surgery is conducted through a small incision without damaging the muscles, the procedure involves minimal recovery.
Discectomy is meant for patients suffering from disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, and other spinal disc-related conditions. The surgeon removes the damaged disc (or the damaged parts of the disc) to decompress the pinched nerves and alleviate back pain.
Laminectomy is meant for patients suffering from the symptoms of nerve compression because of bone spurs, usually because of spinal stenosis or arthritis. The surgeon removes the bone spurs and the lamina at the back of the vertebra to create more space within the spinal canal, thus decompressing the surrounding nerve roots.
Disc replacement is meant for patients suffering from disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, and other spinal disc conditions. The surgeon removes the damaged disc and replaces it with an artificial disc. This procedure alleviates back pain and restores optimal mobility and flexibility.
Spinal fusion is meant for patients suffering from the symptoms of spinal fractures or damaged spinal discs. The surgeon removes the damaged discs and fuses the two (or more) adjacent vertebrae, eliminating painful motion and friction between the vertebrae.
