Our Spine Care Procedures


Minimally Invasive Laminectomy

This minimally invasive decompression surgery is used to treat leg pain. The procedure consists of a small 2cm incision and surgery through an 18mm tube using a microscope. Patients are usually able to return home the same day.

Direct Lateral Interbody Fusion

This new technique for chronic lower back and leg pain uses fusion and is also muscle sparing. The procedure is done through a small incision on the side of the abdomen. This procedure allows for greater stabilization and promotes bone healing.

Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

This procedure is used to fuse discs in the treatment of lower back and leg pain. By entering through the abdomen, back muscle and nerves are left untouched and a larger implant can be used allowing for better initial stability.

Spinal Cord Stimulator

A minimally invasive procedure used for chronic low back and leg pain for which there isn't a good surgery or for failed prior surgery. Can also be used for chronic neck and arm pain. Most patients report a 50 to 70% reduction in pain with this treatment.

Posterior Cervical Procedure

This procedure goes through the back of the neck to remove lamina and bone spurs that are putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots. This is used for larger cervical spine procedures that span more levels or in patients who have failed an anterior cervical fusion.

Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion

A muscle sparing approach to the cervical spine for the treatment of arm or neck pain. This procedure is used in the treatment of disc herniation by combining the removal of an offending disc and fusion. This approach is often preferred as it allows for better access to the spine and generally has less postoperative pain.

Minimally Invasive Kyphoplasty

This minimally invasive procedure uses a small incision to perform surgery to return a fractured back to a normal position. This procedure allows for decreased pain and speedy recovery times.

Minimally Invasive Discectomy

A minimally invasive surgery used in the treatment of leg pain. The procedure consists of a small incision and surgery through a tube with a microscope. Patients usually return home on the same day.

Scoliosis

Most scoliosis surgeons agree that children who have very severe curves (45-50° and higher) will need surgery to lessen the curve and prevent it from getting worse.

The operation for scoliosis is a spinal fusion. The basic idea is to realign and fuse together the curved vertebrae so that they heal into a single, solid bone.

With the tools and technology available today, Texas Spine Care are able to improve curves significantly.
