Spine Care 

Sometimes we take for granted the proper functioning of the neck and back allows for effortless movement. However, more than 80 percent of adults will experience significant back or neck pain during their life. When a deformity, injury or disease makes activities such as turning, bending or stretching painful, our Progress West spine specialists are here to evaluate your pain and provide the very best orthopedic care available anywhere. 

Procedures include:

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF)
A surgical procedure performed to remove a herniated or degenerative disc in the cervical (neck) spine.

Posterior Cervical Fusion
The posterior cervical fusion is performed through an incision in the back of the neck; a posterior cervical fusion is used to stop the motion between two or more vertebrae to recreate the normal curve of the cervical spine and keep a spinal deformity from getting worse to stabilize the spine after a fracture or dislocation of the cervical spine.

Lumbar Laminectomies
A surgical procedure typically to treat leg pain related to herniated discs, spinal stenosis and other related conditions.

Minimally Invasive Microdiscectomies
A procedure for patients who have received conservative treatment but have continued pain; performed in less than one hour with an incision is about a half inch, patients are able to return to normal activities quicker.

Lumbar Fusions
A procedure to relieve pain, numbness, tingling and weakness, restore nerve function and stop or prevent abnormal motion in the spine; done by fusing the vertebrae together; the lumbar fusion can be done in the front or the back of the spine.

Spinal Cord Stimulators
Using low voltage stimulation of the spinal nerves, this blocks the  pain; helps to better manage pain and potentially decrease the amount of pain medication; it also may be an option for long-term (chronic) leg or arm pain and have not found relief through traditional methods.
