Intraoperative Monitoring (IOM) of the Nerves
Intraoperative Monitoring (IOM) of the Nerves is used during complex surgical procedures, especially those that involve manipulation of the spinal cord.
Kyphoplasty (Ballon Vertebroplasty)
Kyphoplasty (Balloon Vertebroplasty) is a minimally-invasive procedure that repairs a vertebral compression fracture.
Laminectomy is a procedure that relieves pressure on the nerve roots in the spine.
Lumbar Disc Microsurgery
Lumbar Disc Microsurgery is a procedure that relieves pressure on nerve roots caused by a herniated disc.
Minimally-Invasive Lumbar Microdecompression
Minimally-Invasive Lumbar Microdecompression is a procedure used to remove overgrown vertebral bone and soft tissue.
Minimally-Invasive TLIF (Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion)
Minimally-Invasive TLIF is a procedure used to remove a degenerated disc.
OLIF: Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion (for L2-L5)
OLIF: Oblique Lumbar Interbody Fusion is a surgery to correct problems caused by a degenerated disc in your spine. It creates more space for your nerves. OLIF is performed through a small opening in your side.
PLIF: Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant
Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms and legs.
Spinal Fusion (Lumbar)
