Decompression with Interlaminar Stabilization Device
As we grow older, the components of our spine naturally begin to wear and tear. This natural degeneration of the spine is caused by years of repetitive motion coupled with weight gain and improper form when bending and lifting. As all of these things continually occur, the joints and discs in the spine begin to slowly deteriorate, leaving the spine susceptible to developing degenerative spine conditions and instability.
When the spine slowly deteriorates, certain components of the spine, such as discs or vertebrae, can move out of alignment and compress a nerve root in the spinal canal. This can cause immense pain and symptoms as the spinal cord and surrounding nerve roots become compressed. If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is important for you to seek medical treatment before the symptoms progress and worsen.
If you are researching treatment options, you may be just starting to experience spinal pain or you are desperately searching for a treatment option that will finally relieve your chronic pain. For patients just starting to search for back pain treatment, you should begin a regimen of conservative treatment as directed by your physician. However, for patients who have exhausted all nonsurgical therapies without finding pain relief, Laser Spine Institute has a minimally invasive treatment option that may help you avoid traditional open back surgery.
A safer and effective approach to spine surgeryAt Laser Spine Institute we understand the devastating impact these symptoms can have on the quality of the life that you live. We are committed to offering our patients an effective and successful alternative to traditional open neck or back procedures, such as our minimally invasive decompression with Interlaminar Stabilization device procedure.
During this procedure, the surgeon will enter the spinal canal through a small incision, avoiding the surrounding muscles and soft tissue. The first goal during this procedure is to decompress the impacted nerve root in the spinal canal that is causing the chronic pain and symptoms. After decompressing this area, the surgeon will insert a specialized device in order to stabilize the spine while protecting the decompressed area.
Unlike traditional open back fusion that requires several days of hospitalization and a higher risk of excessive blood loss and infection, our minimally invasive stabilization surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure and involves lower risks due to our minimally invasive techniques.
Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive decompression with Interlaminar Stabilization device can treat many conditions
This procedure is specialized in treating the pain and symptoms associated with severe spinal stenosis, which is simply the narrowing of the spinal canal. This can occur as the result of a number of different conditions, including bulging or herniated discs and bone spurs. The decompression with Interlaminar Stabilization device is used in order to reopen this narrowed canal by decompressing and removing any material that is restricting the space.
If you are suffering from severe spinal stenosis, Laser Spine Institute may be able to assist you through the use of our decompression with Interlaminar Stabilization device procedure at our Tampa center. For more information, contact us today.
