What are your treatment options?



Spinal Fusion

Spinal fusion surgery joins two or more vertebrae into one single structure. The goal is to stop movement between the two bones and prevent back pain. Once they’re fused, they no longer move like they used to. This keeps you from stretching nearby nerves, ligaments and muscles that may have caused discomfort.

Indications for Spinal Fusion Surgery
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Fracture
  • Scoliosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Tumors or spine infection

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should contact your local miVIP office now and speak with one of our board-certified spine specialists: 855.496.4847



Micro-Discectomy

Discectomy is surgery to remove lumbar (low back) herniated disc material that is pressing on a nerve root or the spinal cord.

It tends to be done as a minimally invasive micro-discectomy, which uses a special microscope to view the disc and nerves. This larger view allows the surgeon to use a smaller incision during surgery. This causes less damage to surrounding tissue and faster recovery time.

Indications for minimally invasive micro-discectomy surgery:
  • Bad leg pain
  • Weakness on one or both legs
  • Loss of bladder control

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should contact your local miVIP office now and speak with one of our board-certified spine specialists: 855.496.4847



Decompression Surgery

A lumbar laminectomy is the spinal decompression surgery most commonly performed to treat lumbar spinal stenosis symptoms. During this procedure, the lamina (the bone in the back of the vertebrae) at one or more segments is removed with the goal of alleviating pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.

Common reasons for needing minimally invasive decompression surgery:
  • Patients with sciatica
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck or leg pain caused by a herniated disc, bulging disc or degenerated disc
