Spine surgery done the “classic” way is traditionally done with an open approach, meaning that the surgical area being operated on is opened with a long incision to allow full view and access to the anatomy by the surgeon. In the past recent years, there have been advances in technology that have allowed spinal conditions to be treated with the minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) approach.Dr. Brusovanik Helps CBS4's Eliott Rodriguez Without Surgery 2

PATIENT TESTIMONIAL

I’m a 77 year old retired physician. For 1 year I had severe sciatic pain radiating from my right lower back to my right lower leg. I couldn’t walk more than 50 feet before the pain became severe. Dr. Georgiy Brusovanik performed surgery at Doctors hospital in Coral Gables replacing all the disk in my lumbar spine because the degeneration was severe.Procedure was done in two stages.The surgery was very successful.My recovery each time was shorter than i expected.I am now able to walk my dogs up to 12 city blocks per day.I am very pleased with the care i received and feel that Dr. Brusovanik expertise and kind manor helped me to achieve the success i had.

ABOUT Cervical Fusion

A classic cervical fusion is an operation that’s done to improve patients’ quality of life and lessen their pain, specifically in cases where a cervical disc, a disc in the neck has become degenerative in associated with other degenerative changes.

Cervical Epidural steroid injectionThis injection relieves pain in the neck, shoulders, and arms caused by a pinched nerve (or nerves) in the cervical spine. Conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or radiculopathy can compress nerves, causing inflammation and pain. The medication injected helps decrease the swelling of nerves.

In case of significant degenerative change, maintaining motion will result in continue pain in many cases, and a disc replacement, although a preferred operation in my hands, sometimes is not reasonable for a patient with end stage arthritis. A fusion can be done in that case, and the results are outstanding, but the newer way to do these fusions without cutting the neck muscles and using essentially Q-tips to gently get to the spine avoids the morbidity of the operation and also lessens the risk of such complications as a laryngeal nerve palsy, which may limit a patient’s ability to talk.

Cervical LaminaplastyThis surgical procedure creates more space for the spinal cord and nerve roots to relieve the painful pressure of spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal that can result from arthritis.
Anterior Cervical Decompression and Fusion (Intervertebral Spacer)This surgery removes a herniated or diseased disc and relieves neck and radiating arm pain caused by parts of the disc pressing on nerve roots.
Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement (PCM)(Caution: Investigational Device) A goal of this procedure is to relieve the pain caused by pinched nerves due to a damaged disc in the cervical spine. The diseased or damaged disc will be replaced with a specialized implant.
