If you have back pain, you may be able to get it treated without traditional surgical procedures. Here at Pain Physicians NY, we are dedicated to helping our patients manage their back pain with the least invasive procedures as possible. While many of our patients will respond to physical therapy, some still require surgery but it does not have to be a major procedure like those once frequently performed for back pain. If you have tried other means to ease your pain but still need surgery for your back pain, we can help you with minimally invasive surgery for your back pain.
The Advantages of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
One of the advantages of minimally invasive spine surgery is the reduced recovery time. You may still require a period of rehabilitation after the procedure, but there will be less pain and the time to get back to your routine will be shorter compared to traditional spine surgery. These procedures usually use one or several small incisions through which the surgeon inserts a camera and the surgical instruments. These tiny cuts create smaller surgery scars that heal faster than larger incisions from traditional spine surgery.
Some of the spine treatment options we offer include:
- Anterior endoscope cervical microdiscectomy
- Degenerative disc disease
- Decompressor discectomy
- Intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET)
- Micro endoscopic discectomy
- Intrathecal pump implant
- Percutaneous laser discoplasty
- YESS selective endoscopic discectomy
- Intralaminar lumbar microednoscopic discectomy
- Prolotherapy treatment for chronic lower back pain
- Percutaneous disc nucleoplasty
Here at Pain Physicians NY, we are the source for advanced pain management in New York. We provide our patients with a wide range of treatment options for their back pain. You may be a candidate for minimally invasive surgery if non-invasive options did not work for you.
