WE TREAT PEOPLE NOT PATIENTS

Several treatment options have been introduced to deal with some of the most common spine conditions. They vary based on the condition you have and the treatment method you choose. The medical field has evolved to give patients a lot of choices. Below are some of the treatments and surgeries for common spine conditions.

(XLIF) Extreme Lateral Interbody Fusion

MORE

360° Anterior and Posterior Lumbar Fusion

Also known as anterior/posterior lumbar fusion, this procedure is one of the more common approaches for fusing the lumbar to prevent abnormal motion in a section of the spine that is causing chronic pain. Typically, this procedure will require incisions in the posterior lower back region and an incision in the anterior abdominal area. By utilizing a 360° method, muscle trauma is minimalized compared to other fusion methods, although it is usually more invasive and carries greater risks

MORE

ACDF

Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion (ACDF) is a surgical procedure in which your doctor removes a damaged or herniated disc. After the disc is extracted, your doctor inserts a bone graft into the space which was once occupied by the removed disc. Over time, the bone graft matures, leaving you with a fused section of bone instead of two vertebrae. This gives extra stability to your neck and successfully eliminates pain.

MORE

Acupuncture for Back Pain

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical practice that has become a popular and effective means for treating back pain. Administered by a trained acupuncturist, acupuncture has become a go-to treatment for managing back pain. If you are struggling with back pain that has not resolved with other treatments or medications, acupuncture may be a good option.

MORE

Ankle Arthroscopy

An ankle arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to diagnose and/or treat minor ankle issues. During the procedure, your surgeon makes a small incision in the ankle (called a portal), through which tiny instruments are used to explore, clean out, and adjust the ankle. This procedure is used to treat a variety of ankle problems, including synovitis, loose bodies, ankle instability, ankle sprains and fractures, and more.

MORE

Anterior Cervical Corpectomy and Fusion (ACCF)

When a cervical disease encompasses more than just the disc space, a spine surgeon may recommend the removal of the vertebral body and the disc spaces at either end to decompress the cervical canal completely. This procedure is called an anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion and is often done for multi-level cervical stenosis with spinal cord compression caused by bone spur growth.

MORE

Anterior Cervical Discectomy

Anterior Cervical Discectomy (ACD) is a procedure in which your surgeon excises a degenerated or ruptured disc. During the procedure, your doctor will replace the disc with an artificial model and use surgical hardware (such as rods, screws, and plates) to hold the new structure in position. Unlike ACDF, fusion of adjacent vertebrae is not necessary to reinforce the area. Ultimately, this affords the patient with more mobility in his or her neck.

MORE

Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

During an anterior lumbar interbody fusion, the spine is approached from the front of the body. A three-inch incision is made on the left side of the abdomen and the abdominal muscles. Anterior lumbar fusion procedures are performed as an open surgery to provide clear visualization of the discs space and vasculature. The procedure removes part or all of a damaged disc between two adjacent vertebrae in the lumbar spine. Those vertebrae are fused using bone graft or bone graft substitute. These procedures can be done in conjunction with another …

Artificial Disc Replacement

For patients who suffer from spinal discs that have become worn down or damaged, an artificial disk replacement may be the best option to alleviate the chronic pain. This is the process of removing the cushioning between vertebrae and inserting an artificial replacement. Doctors may recommend this procedure because of ongoing back pain and loss of mobility that their patients cannot adequately recover from using a traditional treatment method.

MORE

Axial Fusion

Axial fusion is a spine disease treatment used to correct lumbar disc problems. This method aims to repair the discs that lie between the first sacral vertebra and the last lumbar vertebra. A small incision is made next to the tailbone to access the required area. The damaged discs are then removed and replaced with bone graft material. This method is useful, as the recovery time is very quick and it successfully eliminates pain, tingling and numbness.

MORE

Barricaid®

Barricaid is a procedure used after a discectomy and is designed to close the incision hole while preserving as much native disc as possible. Patients who have a higher risk of returning leg and back pain, as well as another disc herniation, are encouraged to seek the assistance of barricaid. Proven to reduce reoperation rates, barricaid is a barrier that plugs the hole from the inside the annulus and consists of a titanium bone anchor.

MORE

Botox for Migraines

If you experience migraines for more than 15 days every month, Botox may be a viable procedure for treating your pain. While using Botox injections for migraines can be accompanied by neck stiffness and muscle weakness, it can be extremely effective at reducing the amount of migraines individuals experience and the severity of pain. Using Botox for migraine treatment is a relatively new approach.

MORE

Bursectomy

A Bursectomy is a minimally invasive procedure in which your orthopedic doctor removes an inflamed, infected, or irritated bursa, a liquid-filled sac that supplies our joints with the synovial fluid that enables our bones to glide past one another. During the procedure, your surgeon will use an arthroscope to visualize the tissues of the target joint and small instruments to remove the bursa. This approach allows for less scarring and quicker recovery times than more invasive methods.

MORE

Cancer Pain Treatment Options

While a cancer diagnosis can already be incredibly physically and emotionally challenging, many patients also experience severe pain that can disrupt their quality of life during this difficult time. Fortunately, there are several conservative and minimally invasive treatments available for cancer pain that can significantly improve your symptoms.

Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection

A recent recommendation for lumbar fusion spine surgery may have you wondering how long you will be in the hospital, if your recovery will take a long time, and how much scar care you will need. The good news is that your doctor may recommend a surgical method known as minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) that can minimize all three of those experiences, depending on your condition.

MORE

Cervical Facet Injection

A cervical facet injection is a procedure used to specifically diagnose a patient’s pain as well as provide immediate and long-term pain relief so they can comfortably participate in a physical therapy program. The procedure involves injecting a numbing agent—usually a steroid-based medication—into the facet joints to block pain. The degree of immediate relief experienced by the patient will help determine whether the facet joint is itself the source of pain or if there is a further underlying condition that must be addressed.

MORE

Chiropractic Care For Back Pain

Chiropractic care involves non-surgical treatments of conditions related to the nervous and musculoskeletal system. Using spinal manipulation techniques and other manual treatments, chiropractors treat conditions such as lower back pain, radiculopathy, herniated discs, and neck pain—to name a few. In general, receiving treatments from a chiropractor is a great first approach to treating back pain

MORE

Coccygectomy

Coccygectomy is an important MINIMALLY INVASIVE procedure for treating any conditions arising from the coccyx. The treatment is very simple and involves the removal of the coccyx. You will be able to save yourself from an enormous amount of pain, as you do not really need this body part. Coccygectomy is a very efficient method of putting an end to chronic pain around that area. Pain that is felt when walking, sitting or emptying the bowels will be eliminated for good.

MORE

Cortisone Injections for Back Pain

Epidural steroid injections are used to treat many forms of back pain. These injections involve inserting a local anesthetic and steroid medication—usually cortisone—into the epidural space that surrounds the nerve roots and spinal cord. Also referred to as cortisone injections, this treatment method is one of the primary non-surgical approaches for relieving lower back pain and sciatica.

MORE

Degenerative Disc Disease Surgery

Between our spinal bones are tough, rubbery discs that act as shock absorbers and spacers for the spine. These discs allow the nerve roots and nerves to pass through holes and spaces in the spinal column as well as enable the spinal bones to move—which provide the neck and back to bend, twist, and flex as we move about our day.

MORE

Diagnostic Medial Branch Block

A recent recommendation for lumbar fusion spine surgery may have you wondering how long you will be in the hospital, if your recovery will take a long time, and how much scar care you will need.

MORE

Elbow Arthroscopy

An elbow arthroscopy is a form of minimally invasive elbow surgery that is used to correct a variety of elbow problems, from tennis elbow to osteochondritis dissecans. During an elbow arthroscopy, an orthopedic surgeon uses an arthroscope and tiny instruments to remove bone fragments (a process called debridement), to repair articular cartilage or tendons, or to relieve pressure on pinched nerves.

MORE

Endoscopic Discectomy

Endoscopic discectomy is a MINIMALLY INVASIVE spinal surgery used to remove damaged discs that are causing back or neck pain. It’s a very useful method if you are looking for a safe and efficient approach. A laser beam is used to create a small opening, which is then utilized to remove small parts of any bulging tissues. This will provide the patient with comfort and relief, as the cause of chronic pain will be eradicated instantly.

MORE

Endoscopic Foraminotomy

This is a MINIMALLY INVASIVE spinal repair surgery used to enlarge nerve root openings by eradicating the effects of foraminal narrowing. With this method, the small openings in each vertebra are widened to prevent them from being blocked. No impingement will be caused to nerves and blood flow any longer. Both pain and numbness will be eradicated and your range of motion will return to normal, allowing you to engage in your daily activities with no problems at all.

MORE

Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy

A lumbar discectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove herniated disc material from the lower back (lumbar) that is pressing on a nerve or the spinal cord. When this procedure is performed with the use of an endoscope, it is called a lumbar endoscopic discectomy. This is considered a MINIMALLY INVASIVE procedure because only a small incision is necessary.

MORE

Epidural Steroid Injections

Epidural steroid injections provide a non-surgical treatment option to patients suffering chronic lower lumbar back pain. While the relief provided is only temporary, lasting up to a year in some patients, these injections benefit patients in many ways that can lead to longer-term care solutions to treat their ongoing back pain. This effect has been most noticeable in helping patients continue to begin a physical rehabilitation program.

MORE

Extremity Tendon Repair

An extremity tendon repair is a series of procedures that aim to mend bands of fibrous connective tissue known as tendons. Tendons attach the muscles in your body to bones, thus enabling movement. An extremity tendon repair, therefore, endeavors to restore function to your limbs—whether the damage in question is to your patellar, Achilles, biceps, quadriceps, or rotator cuff tendons. As you have probably guessed, this means that each procedure by NJ Spine & Ortho is tailored to fit the injury in question.
