Laser spine surgeries
surgeries are used to treat a variety of spinal conditions in the patients.
Laser spine surgeries are used to treat spinal stenosis, foraminal stenosis,
herniated discs, scar tissue, arthritis, and bone spurs.
The experience of the surgeon peforming the laser spine surgeries is important in a spine surgery. Hence you have to take care that you are in the right hands before you decide to have a spinal surgery.
Due to compression of the foramen the nerves are under pressure and such a condition is relieved using a surgical procedure called the foraminotomy.
The compression of the foramen can happen due to scar tissue, disc or bone. Excess ligament development could also be the cause for the nerve compression. A pinched nerve is the result of such compression of the nerves.
Such conditions are relieved by laser spine surgeries like foraminotomy. Conditions like foraminal stenosis, pinched nerve, bulging disc, bone spurs, spinal arthritis, and sciatica can be treated with such laser spine surgeries.
Laser spine surgeries like foraminotomy are be performed using local anesthesia. There is no need for a general anesthesia. Such laser spine surgeries can be done as outpatient.
Some of the advantages of such laser spine surgeries are mostly there is no hospitalization required. the laser spine surgeries are minimally invasive and there is no blood loss. The recovery time is also quick.
Laser spine surgeries like laminotomy are performed in patient to increase the space for a neural tissue that gives pressue to the spinal canal and spinal cord.
Conditions like pinched nerve, bone spurs, spinal stenosis, herniated disc, scar tissue formation and spinal arthritis are treated using laser spine surgeries like laminotomy.
Facet thermal ablation are also treated using laser spine surgeries.The facet joint is cleaned using laser in this facet thermal ablation. The affected nerve is removed using these laser spine surgeries.
Conditions like facet disease, facet arthritis, facet hypertrophy, facet joint syndrome, and degenerated facet joints are treated using laser spine surgeries like this.
Percutaneous arthroscopic disectomy are also performed using laser spine surgeries. This surgery is used to remove the disc material that gives pressure to the nerves or the spinal cord.
As with any
other surgery there are also complications with the spinal surgeries.
You have to discuss these complications that can occur with your surgeon
before you take up a surgery.
