Minimally invasive decompression surgery may be an option for patients suffering from a compressed nerve in their spinal cord, resulting in local and radiating pain. This type of nerve pain may be caused by the following common conditions:
Our minimally invasive procedures allow our surgeons to enter the site of the spine condition, whether in the neck or back, through a less than 1-inch incision. Through this incision, the surgeon will remove the area of the bone or disc that is compressing a nerve in your spinal cord. Once the nerve is decompressed, the incision is closed and the patient is moved into the recovery room. All of our surgeries are performed in our outpatient surgery center, which mean that our patients are able to leave the same day as their surgery was performed.
