The team of spine surgery specialists at Resurgens Spine Center are board-certified orthopaedic spine treatment experts. Our surgeons will thoroughly review each individual’s condition and only offer surgical treatment when all non-surgical options have failed. The surgeons at Resurgens Spine Center are trained in the latest surgical techniques, including minimally-invasive spine surgery and artificial disc replacement. Many of these surgeries can now be performed on an outpatient basis in one of our surgery centers.

Neck

Neck Surgical Procedures

Cervical Spine (Neck) Surgery is most commonly performed for degenerative conditions or injuries of the neck that lead to pinched nerves. These spine conditions include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, spinal arthritis (spondylosis), and degenerative disc disease. Typical symptoms include neck pain and radiculopathy, which is radiating arm pain, numbness or weakness caused by pinching of the spinal cord or spinal nerves.

For cervical radiculopathy caused by a herniated disc, surgical options may include a posterior cervical foraminotomy or cervical artificial disc replacement. For conditions where there is more significant disc degeneration or arthritis, a spinal fusion may be needed. Learn more about the different surgical neck procedures in our patient education center.

Low back

Low Back Surgical Options

Lumbar Spine (Back) Surgery is most commonly performed for degenerative conditions or injuries of the back that lead to pinched nerves. These conditions include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, spinal arthritis (spondylosis), scoliosis, spinal instability, and degenerative disc disease. Typical symptoms include lower back pain and radiculopathy, which is radiating leg pain, numbness or weakness caused by pinching of the spinal cord or spinal nerves.

For lumbar radiculopathy caused by a herniated disc, bone spur or spinal stenosis, surgical options may include a microdiscectomy, laminectomy, minimally-invasive microdecompression, or endoscopic discectomy. For conditions where there is spinal instability, scoliosis, or severe disc degeneration and arthritis, a spinal fusion may be needed. The spinal fusion may be done through a minimally-invasive technique such as minimally-invasive TLIF or lateral interbody fusion (XLIF or LLIF).
