When a person is dealing with a serious thoracic abnormality, it can be very overwhelming for them to decide on the best treatment option. Thoracic spinal abnormalities like a herniated disc, scoliosis, fractures and more can cause a great deal of pain, therefore making it hard to make a decision. With the help of our medical team at Innovative Spine, we can help you decide which treatment option is right for you.
Here at Innovative Spine, we offer four courses of thoracic surgery depending on your particular condition. We offer discectomy, fusion scoliosis correction, kyphoplasty and laminectomy. During your consultation, your thoracic region may be examined to determine if you are a good candidate for thoracic surgery and which treatment would be right for you.
When you have a herniated disc in your spine it can be very difficult to find effective ways to alleviate the pain that it is causing. If one of your spinal discs is herniated and you have exhausted other treatment options with no improvement, a discectomy may be right for you. A discectomy removes part of the herniated disc to finally provide you with relief.
Your spine is meant to be relatively straight, but when your spine curves it can impair your movement and cause pain and discomfort. This condition is called scoliosis. Through fusion scoliosis correction the abnormal curvature of your spine can be corrected. When you fully recover, you can finally move without causing yourself pain.
If you are dealing with a compression fracture, you will be happy to know you have a minimally-invasive option of treatment with kyphoplasty. Kyphoplasty involves using a balloon to straighten and create space in the affected area.
When dealing with an overcrowded spinal cord, often called spinal stenosis, laminectomy can be used to help create space and alleviate pain.
