Low Back Pain
Almost everyone will experience low back pain at some time in their lives, since aging causes degenerative changes in the spine. These changes can start in your 30s — or even younger — and can make you prone to back pain, especially if you overdo it or lift or bend incorrectly.
The pain differs from one person the next. It can vary from mild to severe, intermittent or constant. It can be short-lived or long-lasting, start slowly or hit suddenly.
Specific causes of low back pain include:
- Disk Injury
- Disk tear
- Disk herniation. “slipped” or herniated disc.
- Disk Degeneration
- Degenerative Spondylolisthesis
- Spinal Stenosis
However it happens, low back pain can make it difficult to do many everyday activities. However, in most cases, back pain resolves on its own within a few weeks.
Minimally Invasive Surgical Options
Minimally invasive procedures are performed through one or more dime-sized incisions, with much less trauma to the body. For most patients, this leads to significantly less postoperative pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and, in some cases, a better overall outcome. Minimally invasive surgery may also allow more people — some of whom might not be candidates for open surgery — to undergo surgical repair.
We offer a variety of minimally invasive techniques for:
- Herniated disc
- Bulging disc
- Degenerative Disc
- Arthritis (spine) and bone spurs
- Facet disease
- Pinched nerve
- Spinal stenosis
- Foraminal stenosis
- Minimally invasive fusion
