Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, (MIS)
Minimally invasive spine procedures are faster, result in less pain, have
smaller scars, and reduce the recovery time needed following most surgeries.
Compared to regular, “open” surgical procedures, minimally
invasive ones cause much less trauma to the muscles, soft tissues, and
have less of a chance of infection.
Conditions We can Treat Using MIS Operations:
Complex Spinal Reconstruction
In certain cases, patients will require more complex spinal surgery. Our
Iredell County health professionals offer complex spinal reconstruction
for those patients who need cervical disc replacement, posterior cervical
fusion, thoracic instrumentation, lumbar laminectomy, and many other complicated
procedures. We implement state-of-the-art equipment such as the intraoperative
CT scanner with computer navigation and utilize the latest advancements
in spine surgery to ensure our patients get an optimal level of care.
Artificial Disk Replacement
For some patients suffering from cervical disk problems, artificial disk
replacement may be an option. We utilize the Medtronic Prestige® Cervical
Disc, which is a titanium prosthetic device. It has been carefully designed
to help you maintain motion in your neck. This is an extremely innovative
device that allows for mobility and motion that simply wasn’t possible
with previous methods.
Spinal Cord Stimulators (SCS) for Chronic Pain
Patients that suffer from chronic pain in their neck, lower back, arms
or legs may be good candidates for treatment from a spinal cord stimulator.
At Iredell NeuroSpine Center, we use Precision Spectra with SmoothWave
Technology by Boston Scientific Systems. This innovative technology utilizes
more than 30 independently programed power sources designed to tailor
stimulation to target your unique health needs.
How a SCS Works
Pain is carried through electrical nerve impulses along a person’s
spinal cord and all the way to the brain. A SCS works through implanting
a small pulse generator and insulated wires into your body. Once installed,
an external remote control can be used to send electrical impulses to
help mask the pain signals travelling to your brain.
Peripheral Nerve Decompression
At Iredell NeuroSpine Center, we offer care and treatment for a variety
of disorders resulting from nerve compression. When a nerve is compressed
it can cause symptoms of pain, numbness, or weakness.
For instance, when the nerves in the wrist and hand are compressed, it
leads to carpel tunnel syndrome (CTS). There are conservative treatments
for CTS that can be very effective, avoiding surgery. In some cases, surgery
may be necessary after conservative measures fail. In those instances,
the surgery is a brief same day procedure, and we focus on getting the
patient back to their daily activities as soon as possible.
