Spine Surgery

Spine Specialist & Surgery

Patients requiring spine surgery can find comprehensive and advanced care at Brooklyn Premier Orthopedics. Our orthopedic spine surgeons offer minimally invasive surgical treatments as well as traditional surgeries to address spinal disorders and issues.

Our spine surgeons use the most advanced technologies and techniques. Robotics, imaging systems and other technologies are used by a surgeon to specifically address a spine disorder without affecting unrelated parts of the spine or healthy tissue. The use of advanced technologies during spine surgery lead to faster patient recovery and a reduced risk of complications.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Depending on the type of spine surgery, minimally invasive techniques might be used to treat a specific spine disorder or in conjunction with another surgical procedure. The smaller incisions made during minimally invasive surgery cause less trauma, blood loss, risk for infection, tissue and muscle damage, blood loss and scarring than a traditional surgery. Minimally invasive spine surgery allows a patient and quicker and experience less post-operative back and neck pain than they would from traditional surgery.

Minimally invasive surgical techniques can be used to treat spinal cord compression, disc replacements, removal of benign and malignant spine tumors and spine fractures. The spine surgeons at Brooklyn Premier Orthopedics are highly trained and experienced in minimally invasive techniques and provide different types of minimally invasive spine surgery including:

  • Corpectomy
  • Discectomy
  • Foraminotomy
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Laminectomy
  • Laminotomy
  • Spinal Fusion

It’s important to note that not all back and neck disorders can be effectively treated using minimally invasive spine surgery techniques.

A proper diagnosis is extremely important to make sure that a patient is being provided with the best possible treatment.

There are situations where a minimally invasive technique might be used in conjunction with an open surgery.

In some cases a patient might require a complex open surgery to address a severe spinal disorder.  Patients who have a major spine curvature, spinal tumors or who have suffered severe spine trauma might need a complex surgery to address their issue. Complex surgery take a longer period of time to complete than less complicated procedures.

Spine Surgery vs. Conservative Spine Treatment

The overwhelming majority of patients who have a spinal disorder do not need surgery. In most cases spine surgery is the final option, after conservative back and neck pain treatments are exhausted or if the patient if in pain as the result of trauma or a severe injury. Most patients benefits from a combination of non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, bracing, orthotics, medication, exercise, acupuncture, rest and injections (facet, epidural, trigger point or nerve block).
