Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Treatments Offered by Schell Spinal
Spinal Fusion at Schell Spinal
A spinal fusion procedure is a surgery to permanently join two bones together so there is no longer movement between them. Schell Spinal offers minimally invasive spinal fusion procedures that typically result in scars no more than 3 centimeters long. The correction of movement between the bones of the spine can eliminate the severe pain caused by a variety of spine disorders.
Anterior Cervical Discectomy Fusion at Schell Spinal
An anterior cervical discectomy fusion (ACDF) procedure is an operation performed on the upper spine to relieve pressure on one or more nerve roots, or on the spinal cord. Neck and arm pain, among other symptoms, may occur when an intervertebral disc herniates. This happens, either suddenly with injury or slowly over time, when some of the disc’s jelly-like center bulges or ruptures through its tough, fibrous outer ring and presses on a nerve.
Spinal Cord Stimulation at Schell Spinal
A spinal cord stimulator, also called a dorsal column stimulator, is an implanted electronic device used to help treat chronic pain. Spinal cord stimulators have been used for over 30 years. The device delivers a low level electrical current through wires, which are placed in the area near your spinal cord. The device is similar in size to a pacemaker.
