We are one of the first orthopedic programs in the area to offer the state-of-the-art 3T MRI scanner. It quickly provides clear images, meaning treatment can begin sooner. Armed with this information, our team can determine the most effective and least-invasive treatment option for you. We are experienced in treating the full range of spine injuries and conditions, including:
- Spine Fractures
- Back Pain
- Herniated Disc
- Cervical Radiculopathy
- Degenerative Disc Disease
Progressive Treatment Options
Adventist Orthopedic Care offers some of the most progressive spinal procedures, including:
Decompressive Surgery (Laminectomy) - If other treatments have not produced results, laminectomy surgery may be recommended to alleviate severe pain caused by bony overgrowths in the spinal canal. The procedure enlarges the spinal canal, relieving pressure on the spinal cord and nerves by removing the back part of the vertebra that covers the spinal canal.
Spinal Fusion - Spinal fusion surgery reduces back pain by restricting vertebrae movement. Bone is taken from the pelvic bone or from a bone bank and is used to make a bridge between neighboring vertebrae. Metal implants are used to hold the vertebrae together until new bone grows between them. This procedure can be done by itself or alongside the removal of bone and tissue that are narrowing or squeezing the spinal canal.
Deformity Correction - In cases of scoliosis or other spinal deformities, surgery can be used to insert implants to hold the spine in place or fuse the spine together so that the curve cannot get worse.
After your procedure, our expert rehabilitation team will develop an individualized treatment program designed to quickly get you on the road to recovery. We take a team approach to recovery, with you as our most important team member. By emphasizing patient education, we also improve long-term outcomes of treatment. Our therapists and physicians are committed to providing comprehensive care an unmatched level of service at all of our hospitals and rehabilitation facilities.
