Routine Inpatient

Routine / Inpatient

More involved spinal surgery usually involves a bit more time, and usually requires one night in the hospital. This type of spinal surgery generally involves some type of spinal instrumentation and fusion. The most common type is a lumbar fusion. This type of surgery is usually performed for any condition that might cause spinal instability, whether from the primary disease or from the surgical approach. The artificial disc is sometimes an option in the cervical spine, but is not often utilized in the lumbar spine, owing to different biomechanics. More involved spinal surgery is generally indicated for the patients that have extremity pain, and it is felt that either the condition itself is causing the leg pain (i.e.formanial stenosis, spondylolithesis), or that the surgery required to relieve the nerve root compression would destabilize the spine. As with all surgery, it is generally used as a last resort when the patient has failed all conservative treatment options, with the notable exception of a neurologic deficit or impending neurologic deficit. Some common procedures we perform include: All the lumbar fusions we perform are minimally invasive. We do not perform any open posterior fusions. All lumbar fusion involve removal of the disc and spinal re-alignment through an XLIF or ALIF approach, followed by minimally invasive posterior fusion (usually with percutaneous pedicle screws, but occasionally other devices). If a decompression is needed, this is also done in a nimbly invasive fusion. Minimally invasive surgery is not always after that traditional surgery, but results in better outcomes, less complications, and high patient satisfaction. We have several years of data to support this statement.
