Minimally Invasive Treatment for Herniated Discs
For patients with herniated
discs, degenerative discs, or deformity corrections who do not respond to
therapy or medication, our neurosurgeons treat this problem surgically with a
minimally invasive, lumbar discectomy.
Balloon kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive, orthopedic treatment that stabilizes the fracture, thereby reducing pain and providing for correction of the deformity. Studies also report the following benefits:
- Correction of vertebral body deformity
- Significant reduction in back pain
- Significant improvement in quality of life
- Significant improvement in mobility, including the ability to perform daily activities such as walking, hobbies and work
- Significant reduction in the number of days per month that a patient remains in bed
- Low complication rate
