Minimally Invasive Scoliosis Surgery

Minimally Invasive Scoliosis Surgery Sp

Minimally invasive scoliosis surgery is an endoscopic procedure in which surgery is performed through a few small incisions rather than one long incision. In this approach a thin telescope-like instrument with a tiny video camera called an endoscope is inserted through one of the small incisions.

Thoracic Discectomy

Thoracic Discectomy Sp

The human spine provides support to the body allowing you to stand upright, bend, and twist. The spine can be broadly divided into the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. The thoracic spine lies in the mid-back region between the neck and lower back and is protected by the rib cage. It consists of 12 vertebral bones with intervening intervertebral discs.

Posterior Thoracic Fusion

Posterior Thoracic Fusion Sp

Posterior thoracic fusion is a spinal fusion procedure performed through an incision on the back (posterior) of the patient in which two or more vertebrae of the thoracic spine (mid back) are joined together, eliminating any movement between them. This procedure is performed by placing bone grafts or bone graft substitutes in between the affected vertebrae to promote bone growth and eventually fuse the vertebrae into a single, solid bone.
