Motion-preserving spine surgery
Motion-preserving techniques help relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves while preserving your range of motion. Traditionally, surgeons treat conditions that put pressure on the spinal cord and related nerves with fusion surgery, which merges the vertebrae to relieve pain and pressure. While these procedures are safe and can relieve pain, they can permanently immobilize the spine and change the way the neck and back move. With motion-preserving techniques, pressure on the nerves is released without affecting your range of motion, providing you a quicker return to a normal lifestyle, with less limitations on your activity after surgery.
Benefits of motion-preserving spine surgery include:
- Minimally invasive
- Quicker recovery following surgery
- Preserves your range of motion
- Less need for readmission or follow up care
These and other common conditions can be treated with motion-preserving spine surgery:
- Cervical radiculopathy
- Cervical spondylosis
- Degenerative disc disease (cervical, thoracic, lumbar)
- Herniated or ruptured neck or back disc
- Pinched nerve
- Spinal cord compression in the next or cervical myelopathy
- Spinal stenosis of the neck and back
Motion-preserving spine surgery is not for everyone. Our expert neurosurgery team can determine if you are a candidate based on your individual symptoms, age, lifestyle and medical history.
