At OC Spine Center, we provide the leading treatment for spine conditions. We offer a variety of conservative therapies and minimally invasive spine procedures. We take all factors into account as we customize each patient’s unique treatment plan. Depending on the severity of the condition, some patients may find controlled treatment beneficial. The cases that do not respond to conservative efforts may find relief from our spine surgery. Our board-certified spine specialists employ the latest surgical techniques for all of our specialized spine decompression and stabilization surgeries. The decompression procedure is one of our top stabilization procedures performed at OC Spine Center. This procedure alleviates crippling pain and helps reconstruct the anatomy of the spine.
What to Expect
Spinal stenosis is a spinal condition that narrows the spinal canal. Through the narrowing of the spinal canal, the spinal cord or nearby nerves may become compressed and cause various debilitating symptoms. Spinal stenosis most commonly appears in the cervical and lumbar region of the spine. This condition can be successfully treated through our specialized decompression procedure. During this procedure, our board-certified physicians will make a small incision to decompress the targeted area. After the area has been relieved of compression, our spine specialists will then place our innovative stabilization device to restore the structure and functionality of the spine.
Benefits of a Decompression Procedure
Decompression is a minimally invasive stabilization procedure that effectively targets and treats compression. Below are the top advantages of this procedure:
- Short recovery
- Minimally invasive
- Low infection rate
- Outpatient procedure
- Low risk
- High success rate
Minimally Invasive Decompression Surgeries at OC Spine Center
Based on the spinal conditions and specific symptoms presented, our spine specialists will determine the decompression procedure that will most effectively treat the condition. Below are the leading decompression procedures offered at OC Spine Center.
As disc degeneration occurs, discs may place pressure on surrounding nerves or the spinal cord. A discectomy alleviates pain and various other symptoms by addressing the source of compression.
- This procedure most commonly treats herniated discs, pinched nerves, sciatica, foraminal stenosis, and annular tears.
This procedure decompresses pressure that has been placed on nerves. When the foramina become narrowed, nerves are compressed and may cause debilitating chronic pain and lead to a variety of other symptoms.
- Foraminotomy treats herniated discs, pinched nerves, bone spurs, sciatica, osteoarthritis, and foraminal stenosis.
Different spinal conditions can cause nerves to become compressed. Through our specialized laminotomy procedure, our spine specialists are able to provide relief from various restricting symptoms.
