We offer many different services for a variety of spinal issues:
Spinal services area includes:
Degenerative spinal services – these conditions involve the gradual loss of normal structure and function of the spine over time. They are usually caused by aging, but may also be the result of tumours, infections or arthritis. Pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots caused by degeneration can be caused by slipped or herniated discs.
Spinal deformity Services – Scoliosis and kyphosis are curvatures of the spine. Although most common in young teenagers, these deformities affect children as well as adults. In most patients these deformities of the spine are non-progressive; however in some patients, scoliosis and kyphosis continue to slowly progress throughout life, resulting in cosmetic issues, functional issues and occasionally painful and sometimes dangerous curvatures that must be addressed through spine stabilization surgery.
The goals of treating any deformity of the spine are to stop progression, normalize spinal function, and minimize any associated painful problems. For adolescent patients with severe curves, and for adults with curves that continue to worsen, or are painful, surgical treatment can reduce and halt the progression of the spine’s deformity.
Some of the spinal operations/ procedures include: microdiscectomy, decompression, vertebroplasty, scoliosis correction and spinal injections.
