There are more than one million spinal surgeries performed each year in the US to relieve pain, repair injuries, correct degenerative conditions and restore function.
Many spinal surgeries are performed to correct degenerative disk disease that develops as we age. The painful conditions, such as disk herniations, stenosis, and spondylolisthesis, are sometimes treated with non-surgical procedures such as physical therapy, medications, and lifestyle changes. When these treatments are not successful, surgeries such as lamina procedures, diskectomy, disk replacement, or spinal fusion are considered to relieve the patient’s pain.
Surgeries to the spine and supporting structures have been performed for centuries and the advancement in techniques and outcomes are truly remarkable. Board-certified neurosurgeon Dr. Frederick Todd utilizes the latest, most advanced innovative surgical technology to treat a wide range of spinal conditions. Many of these procedures are performed using a minimally invasive approach which offers quicker recoveries than traditional surgeries.
