Spine Stabilization Procedure
A spine stabilization procedure provides an attractive alternative to traditional open spine fusion surgery. With spine stabilization, we can limit the amount of motion at the disc level while still allowing some flexibility. This can help to prevent additional problems from occurring in the future. Spine stabilization can be used to reduce or eliminate pain and improve function for patients with Spinal Stenosis, Spondylolisthesis and other chronic pain conditions affecting the spine. With endoscopic surgical stabilization surgery, there is minimally blood loss, a smaller incision and fewer chances of complications. In addition, patients recover quickly and are able to return to normal activities much faster when compared to open spine fusion surgery.
The Interventional Spine Physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are experts when it comes to performing endoscopic surgical stabilization procedures. Using this advanced surgical technique, we have helped many patients get relief from their back and neck pain so they can once again participate in the activities that they enjoy. Now we would welcome the opportunity to help you regain your quality of life!
