Types of Spinal Surgery
We supply products which can help in the treatment of a variety of spinal conditions which include:
Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty: These procedures are used to repair compression fractures of the vertebrae caused by osteoporosis. Both procedures include the injection of a glue-like bone cement that hardens and strengthens the bone.
Discectomy: This procedure is used to remove a disc when it has herniated and presses on a nerve root or the spinal cord. Laminectomy and discectomy are frequently performed together.
Spinal laminectomy/spinal decompression: This is performed when spinal stenosis causes a narrowing of the spinal canal that results in pain, numbness or weakness. The surgeon removes the bony walls of the vertebrae and any bone spurs, aiming to open up the spinal column to remove pressure on the nerves.
Nucleoplasty: This laser surgery uses radio-frequency energy to treat people with lower back pain associated with a herniated disk. The surgeon inserts a needle into the disc and a plasma laser device is then inserted into the needle. The tip is then heated, creating a field that vaporises the tissue in the disc, reducing its size and relieving pressure on the nerves.
Foraminotomy: This is where the surgeon enlarges a bony hole where a nerve root exits in the spinal canal to prevent bulging disks or joints thickened with age from pressing on the nerve.
Spinal fusion: The surgeon removes the spinal disc between two or more vertebrae, then fuses the adjacent vertebrae using bone grafts or metal devices secured by screws.
Artificial disc replacement: This is considered an alternative to spinal fusion for the treatment of people with severely damaged or degenerative discs. The procedure involves the removal of the effected disc and its replacement by a synthetic disk that helps restore height and movement between the vertebrae.
