Spondylosis Surgery

Spondylosis Surgery

Spondylosis surgery is almost always considered an elective procedure, and is only recommended in cases of extreme, debilitating discomfort that has made normal living virtually impossible. Before physicians will even consider recommending surgery to treat degenerative spine conditions associated with spondylosis, a thorough course of conservative treatment will be attempted. This typically includes physical therapy, pain medication, epidural “nerve block” injections and other non-surgical methods. If chronic symptoms persist despite weeks or months of conservative treatment, a doctor might then present surgery as an option.

Drawbacks of traditional spondylosis surgery

Traditional spondylosis surgery is a major commitment, never to be undertaken lightly. Always research the ramifications thoroughly before deciding to undergo traditional open neck or back surgery. Open spine surgery involves:

  • Long incisions, usually 5 or 6 inches
  • The cutting of muscles and other tissue to provide access to areas of nerve compression
  • The excision of significant portions of the spinal anatomy
  • The implantation of metal or plastic hardware to permanently fuse vertebrae
  • Several days of hospitalization
  • Recuperation lasting a year or more

Minimally invasive alternative

Minimally invasive spondylosis surgery, as performed at Laser Spine Institute, involves small incisions, limited removal of bone or other tissue and requires no hospital stay. Perhaps most importantly, recuperation is far shorter than after traditional surgery. Contact Laser Spine Institute to learn more, or for a review of your MRI or CT scan.
