TOWNSEN MEMORIALSPINAL SURGERY
SPINAL SURGERY IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Spinal surgery requires a very attentive orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of bone and joint disorders, especially in the spine. While orthopedic surgeons are known to perform spinal surgery, neurosurgeons are just as qualified. Fortunately at Townsen Memorial Hospital and ER, we have highly trained and qualified orthopedic and spinal surgeons.
Spinal surgery is a common operation. Many patients seek spinal procedures due to pain caused by a variety of problems, including:
- Degenerative Disk Disease
- Spinal Stenosis
- Fractured Vertebrae
- A Herniated Disk
TYPES OF SPINAL SURGERY
If you have a painful condition that can be cured with surgery, we strongly urge you to consider it. While no surgery is without risk, our highly skilled surgeons can deal with the root cause of your discomfort, allowing you to get back to normal as quickly as possible. At Townsen Memorial Hospital and ER, we provide our patients with a variety of spinal surgeries, such as:
- Disectomy (removal of a part of a disc that causes pain)
- Laminectomy (enlarges the spinal column when there is pressure on the nerve roots)
- Spinal Fusion (two or more vertebrae are fused together to form a single piece)
- Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty (relieves problems associated with compression fractures in the vertebrae)
HOW SPINAL SURGERY CAN HELP
Spinal surgery can be frightening, but it’s important to understand the evolution of medicine in this field. Surgical tools and technology have come a long way over the years. Doctors can now perform back and spine surgery through small incisions, thanks to new imaging tools. Additionally, instrumentation has come a long way as well, and allow most patients to live the rest of their lives without ever requiring additional surgery. Whether you’re having trouble walking, or are experiencing severe back pain, there are multiple benefits to spinal surgery. These benefits include:
- Reduction of blood loss
- Little to no scaring
- Reduced pain
