Surgery

Whether the need for spine surgery is the result of a congenital condition, ongoing deterioration or other condition, the necessary surgical procedures you require are offered  through the Nebraska Spine Hospital. This may require the removal of all or part of a vertebrae or disc, or the use of special devices developed specifically for the conditions of the spine. These include:

  • Discectomy (Microdiscectomy) – removes the herniated disc material that is pressing on a nerve root or spinal cord causing pain
  • Decompression (Laminectomy) – designed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve that is causing leg pain
  • Spinal Deformity Reconstruction (Scoliosis) – helps to reshape the spine to make it more stable
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery – allows surgeons to perform a variety of procedures effectively through smaller incisions using microscopic technology and equipment
