Pain Management

Pain Pump Implant

A pain pump implant delivers medication directly to the spinal cord, providing targeted pain relief for chronic pain conditions. This method reduces the need for oral medications and their side effects.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation uses heat to disrupt nerve signals, reducing pain in the spine. This minimally invasive procedure is effective for conditions like arthritis and chronic back pain.

Spinal Cord Stimulator

A spinal cord stimulator is an implanted device that sends electrical pulses to the spinal cord to block pain signals. It is used for chronic pain that has not responded to other treatments.

Peripheral Nerve Stimulator

Similar to a spinal cord stimulator, a peripheral nerve stimulator targets specific peripheral nerves to alleviate chronic pain. It is a minimally invasive option for pain management.

Regenerative Therapies (Stem Cells and PRP)

Regenerative therapies, including stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, use the body’s natural healing properties to repair damaged tissues and reduce pain. These therapies are minimally invasive and promote long-term healing.

Facet Joint and Sacroiliac Joint Injections

Injections into the facet or sacroiliac joints can provide pain relief and reduce inflammation in these areas, helping to improve mobility and function.

Facet Thermal Ablation

Facet thermal ablation uses heat to destroy nerve endings in the facet joints, reducing pain from arthritis and other spine conditions. It is a minimally invasive procedure with lasting results.

Surgical Treatments

Discectomy

A discectomy involves removing a portion of a herniated disc to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves, alleviating pain and improving function.

Laminotomy

Laminotomy is a surgical procedure that removes part of the vertebral lamina to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves, reducing pain and improving mobility.

Foraminotomy

Foraminotomy involves enlarging the openings (foramina) through which spinal nerves exit, relieving pressure and reducing pain caused by nerve compression.

Anterior Cervical Discectomy Fusion (ACDF)

ACDF is a procedure to remove a damaged disc in the neck and fuse the adjacent vertebrae to stabilize the spine and alleviate pain.

Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that stabilizes compression fractures in the spine, restoring vertebral height and reducing pain.

Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (LLIF)

LLIF is a minimally invasive surgery that fuses vertebrae in the lower back, providing stability and reducing pain from degenerative disc disease or other conditions.

Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)

TLIF is a procedure to fuse the lumbar vertebrae through a small incision in the back, alleviating pain and restoring spinal stability.

SI Joint Fusion

SI joint fusion stabilizes the sacroiliac joint to alleviate chronic pain caused by SI joint dysfunction.

Cervical Disc Replacement

Cervical disc replacement involves removing a damaged disc in the neck and replacing it with an artificial disc to preserve motion and reduce pain.

Interspinous Devices

Interspinous devices are implanted to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves, providing pain relief and improving mobility for conditions like spinal stenosis.

Endoscopic Spine Surgery

Endoscopic spine surgery uses a small camera and instruments inserted through tiny incisions to treat spine conditions, offering less pain and faster recovery compared to traditional surgery.
