Our West Harrison spine doctor is a board certified orthopedic surgeon who is experienced in traditional and minimally invasive spinal surgery. When our spine doctor assesses your individual situation he will be sure to take your lifestyle and expectations into consideration, and then let you know which the best treatment option for you is. Our spine doctor specializes in the treatment of herniated discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and degenerative diseases of the spine. Before recommending a treatment such as spinal fusion he will make sure that all non-surgical treatment methods have been exhausted including epidural injections which are often effective in relieving back pain. When necessary, our expert spine doctor is able to provide patients with spinal fusion. When spinal fusion is performed, two or more vertebrae in the lower back are fused together. This type of surgical procedure will generally last for several hours and is major surgery which is performed in a hospital. There are different ways that spinal fusion can be performed and our doctor will discuss the way that your spinal fusion operation should proceed. Patients are usually required to remain in the hospital for several days after surgery. However, once you get home you will not usually be required to have bed rest. Spinal fusion is meant to relieve pain as well as to strengthen the spine. Other back operations that are performed by our spine doctor are minimally invasive spinal surgery, disc replacement, and revision spinal surgery.
