When you and your orthopedic specialists begin discussing back surgery options, chances are that other noninvasive procedures for minimizing back pain have been unsuccessful. If this is the case, then back surgery can be your best option to alleviate back pain and restore normal movement. The results of a successful back surgery have many health benefits such as the ability to move around with ease and without pain, the ability to work and do your job to the best of your ability, less medication, increased physical health, and improved overall mood and outlook on life. If your back pain is persistent or severe, back surgery from expert orthopedic surgeons at AICA Orthopedics can address problematic areas to bring about relief.
Different back injuries or conditions may require different surgical treatment options. Thankfully, AICA Orthopedics experienced surgeons can assess your pain or injury to determine what type of back surgery is right for you. Spinal fusions are the most common type of back surgery to treat chronic back pain caused by degeneration of the spine. This surgery involved joining spinal vertebrae together to limit nerve pain. Another surgical option is a laminectomy which is most commonly performed on those who suffer from spinal stenosis. Spinal surgeons remove part of the bone, ligament, or bone spurs to relieve the pressure on spinal nerves. This procedure can alleviate spinal weakness and pain, but it can also cause instability of the spine. For this reason, a spinal fusion may also be done along with a laminectomy to stabilize the spinal column. A foraminotomy is another type of back surgery that spinal surgeons may suggest to alleviate back pain. This type of surgery aims to alleviate compressed nerves in the spine by cutting away bone in vertebrae to widen the spinal column space and allow space, specifically at the area where the nerves exit. Again, in some instances, a spinal fusion may also be necessary to increase spinal stability. Sometimes the discs between the spinal vertebrae can be the source of back pain. These spinal discs that act as cushions can slip out of place, compressing spinal nerves in the process. A discectomy is a partial or full removal of spinal discs to ease nerve pressure and alleviate back pain.
