Multiple Types of Neurosurgery Performed At Northwest Specialty Hospital
Multiple types of neurosurgery, or operations on the brain, spine, and nearby nerves, are available at Northwest Specialty Hospital.
Doctors at Northwest Specialty Hospital perform spinal surgery such as ACDF, laminectomy, microdiscectomy, and spinal fusion. In ACDF neurosurgery, damaged discs are removed, nerves decompressed, and grafts placed in the neck to ease severe neck and arm pain, numbness and weakness. In a type of neurosurgery known as spinal fusion, bone grafts are placed between spinal vertebrae to stop motion between the discs and alleviate pain experienced by patients who suffer from lumbar disc disease.
Minimally invasive microdiscectomy is a neurosurgical procedure in which part of a spinal disc is that is pinching or pressing on nearby nerves is removed. This procedure involves much less trauma to the surrounding muscles and generally results in a faster, more comfortable recovery period. During laminectomy, or spinal decompression neurosurgery, the spinal canal is enlarged to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or adjacent nerves.
