BRAIN

Treatment of primary brain tumors, both benign and malignant with or without image guidance.

Treatment of traumatic head injuries: subdural, epidural, intracerebral hematomas.

Treatment of hemorrhagic stroke.

Insertion of ventricular shunts for normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) or obstructive hydrocephalus.

CERVICAL SPINE

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) with instrumentation. The cervical disc and/or spur are removed during this operation. After removal of the disc, a bone graft will be placed in this space, allowing for fusion.

Insertion of artificial discs for cervical disc herniation and/or degeneration.

Treatment of Posterior Decompression of the cervical vertebrae.

Posterior Fusion of the cervical vertebrae.

THORACIC SPINE

Discectomy - A portion of the disc is removed from the spine to release the pressure on the nerve.

Kyphoplasty/Vertebroplasty for fracture - This is a minimally invasive treatment in which orthopaedic balloons are used to gently elevate the fractured vertebrae in an attempt to return it to the correct position.

LUMBAR SPINE

Microdiscectomy (minimally invasive spine procedure) - This is an operation on the lumbar spine that is performed using a very small incision and removes only the portion of the ruptured disc that is pinching the spinal nerve causing pain.

X-Stop®: stenosis - The X-STOP® is a minimally invasive procedure in which an implant called the X-STOP® IPD Implant is placed between two bones called spinous processes in the back of your spine. It is designed to keep the space between your vertebrae open so that when you stand upright the nerves in your back will not be pinched and cause pain.

Decompressive Laminectomy with or without fusion and/or instrumentation - This surgery is done to treat spinal stenosis and relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves. Laminectomy removes bone and/or thickened tissue that is narrowing the spinal canal and squeezing the spinal cord and nerves. This procedure is done by surgically cutting into the back.

Posterior and Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion - In this procedure, the surgeon joins (fuses) two lumbar vertebrae. This helps stabilize the vertebrae in this part of the spine.

PAIN

Spinal Cord Stimulator - This a treatment used for chronic pain. A small stimulator sends signals to your spinal cord to keep the pain messages from being sent to your brain.

PERIPHERAL NERVE

Carpal Tunnel Release - Carpal tunnel release is surgery to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, which is pain and weakness in the hand caused by pressure on the median nerve at the wrist.

Ulnar Nerve Transposition - Ulnar Nerve Transpositon moves the affected nerve to relieve pain and pressure. A new tunnel is created for the nerve during this procedure.
