  • Radiofrequency Ablation for Lumbar Spondylosis Radiofrequency Ablation for Lumbar Spondylosis

    Radiofrequency ablation for lumbar spondylosis is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed to treat lower back pain secondary to lumbar spondylosis. The procedure employs radiofrequency waves to produce heat which damages the nerves transmitting pain signals to the brain in the lumbar spine.

  • Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

    In PLIF, several 1-2-inch incisions are made on the back, a series of increasingly larger dilators are used to spread the muscles apart and provide access to the spine. The rods and screws are placed through the dilator tubes. In some cases, an operating microscope may be used to provide a better view.

  • Lumbar Interbody Fusion Lumbar Interbody Fusion

    Lumbar interbody fusion (LIF) surgery is a surgical technique that involves the removal of a damaged intervertebral disc and the insertion of a bone graft into the disc space created between the two adjoining vertebrae. Bone grafts promote healing and facilitate fusion. Screws and rods are used to stabilize the spine during the healing process.

    Know More
  • Lumbar Spinal Bracing Lumbar Spinal Braces

    Lumbar braces are external devices used to restrict the movement of the lumbar spine and provide support and stability to the lower back region, to relieve back pain and promote healing after surgery or injury.

  • Posterolateral Lumbar Fusion Posterolateral Lumbar Fusion

    Posterolateral lumbar fusion is a surgical technique that involves correcting spinal problems from the back of the spine by placing bone graft between segments in the back and leaving the disc space intact.

    Know More
  • Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion

    Lateral lumbar interbody fusion also known as extreme lateral (XLIF) or direct lateral interbody fusion (DLIF) is a minimally invasive spinal procedure performed to treat back and leg pain caused by degenerative discs and other problems within the vertebral column. Interbody fusion involves the fusing of the affected vertebrae found in the lumbar region (lower back).

  • Lumbar Corpectomy & Fusions Lumbar Corpectomy & Fusion

    Lumbar corpectomy and fusion is a surgical technique performed to remove the vertebral bone or disc material between the vertebrae to alleviate pressure on the spinal cord and spinal nerves (decompression) in the lumbar (lower back) region.

  • Lumbar Microdecompression Lumbar Microdecompression

    Lumbar microdecompression, also known as lumbar microdiscectomy, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to relieve pressure from pinched nerves in the lower back or lumbar region using microsurgical techniques.

  • Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)

    Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) is a type of spinal fusion procedure in which bone graft is placed between the affected vertebrae in the lower back (lumbar) region through an incision on the patient’s back.

  • Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

    Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) is a surgery performed to correct spinal problems in the lower back. The surgery can be implemented either as an open surgery or minimally invasive technique.

  • Anterior Lumbar Corpectomy & Fusion Anterior Lumbar Corpectomy & Fusion

    Anterior Lumbar Corpectomy and Fusion is a surgical technique performed to remove the vertebral bone or disc material between the vertebrae to alleviate pressure on the spinal cord and spinal nerves (decompression) in the lumbar (lower back) region.

  • Lumbar Spinal Fusion Lumbar Spinal Fusion

    Spinal fusion can be performed through different angles depending upon the specific advantages of each and the choice of your surgeon. In posterolateral fusion, bone grafts are placed between the transverse processes present in the back of the spine. In spinal fusion screws and wires are attached through the pedicles of the vertebrae along with a metal rod to fix the affected vertebrae.

  • Minimally Invasive Lumbar Fusion Minimally Invasive Lumbar Fusion

    Spinal fusion is a surgical technique used to join together two or more vertebrae in the spine and to minimize the pain caused by the movement of these vertebrae. The fusion of vertebrae in the lumbar portion of the spine is called lumbar fusion and the surgery can be done as an open or minimally invasive procedure.

  • Posterior Lumbar Fusion Posterior Lumbar Fusion

    Posterior spinal fusion is a procedure where your surgeon makes an incision on your back to expose the spine. The soft tissues and blood vessels are kept apart to avoid damage.

  • Lumbar Fusion Lumbar Fusion

    Lumbar fusion is the procedure of fusing the vertebrae in the lumbar portion of the spine (lower back). A piece of bone, taken from other parts of the body or donated from a bone bank is transplanted between the adjacent vertebrae. Screws, plates, or cages may be used with the bone graft to help hold the spine.

  • Lumbar Epidurals Lumbar Epidural

    Lumbar epidurals are injections to treat and relieve low back pain. A lumbar epidural involves injecting a local anesthetic and an anti-inflammatory steroid into the epidural space of the lower spine (lower back) to reduce inflammation causing the pain.

    Know More
  • Lumbar Facet Block Lumbar Facet Block

    A facet block is a procedure in which a combination of a local anesthetic and a corticosteroid is injected into a facet joint. A lumbar facet block prevents the transmission of pain signals from the lower back.

  • Lumbar Medial Branch Block Lumbar Medial Branch Block

    A medial branch block is a procedure in which a mixture of a local anesthetic with or without a corticosteroid is injected near the medial branch nerves supplying a facet joint. A lumbar medial branch block prevents the transmission of pain signals from the lower back.

    Know More
  • Lumbar Sympathetic Block Lumbar Sympathetic Block

    A lumbar sympathetic block is an injection of a local anesthetic and steroid that is injected into or around the sympathetic nerves to block the transmission of pain impulses from the legs or lower back, thereby relieving pain.
