Spine Conditions Treated


Back Pain

  • Sciatica
    Describes leg pain, tingling, numbness or weakness that starts in the low back and travels down the sciatic nerve in the leg causing sciatica pain.

Neck Pain

  • Radiculopathy
    D
    escribes pain starting in the upper spine (neck) that causes pain, numbness, or weakness in the neck and going down the arm or arms.

Disc

  • Disc Herniation, Herniated Disc, Slipped Disc
    Occurs when a portion of the cushion between the vertebral bodies (intervertebral disc) is no longer in its normal position. The disc usually ruptures posteriorly and pushes on nerves to the arms and legs.
  • Disc Protrusion, Protruding Disc
    A larger disc herniation which frequently pushes on nerves in the arms and legs causing pain.
  • Disc Bulge, Bulging Disc
    A small disc herniation which can irritate a nerve, but usually does not require surgery.
  • Disc Extrusion, Extruded Disc
    A herniated disc with leaking material that forms a certain characteristic shape.
  • Disc Degeneration, Degenerated Disc, Degenerative Disc Disease
    Changes which occur in the intervertebral disc during the normal aging process, which makes the disc more brittle.
  • Spondylosis
    A stress fracture of the back of the spine. Occurs in the portion of the lamina known as the "pars interarticularis."
  • Spondylolisthesis
    The slip of a vertebra relative to another. It causes the spinal canal to narrow, squeezing on the nerves therefore causing back and leg pain or sometimes weakness.

Stenosis

  • Cervical Stenosis
    A condition in which the spinal canal in the neck is too narrow for the spinal cord and existing spinal nerves.
  • Lumbar Stenosis
    A narrowing of the spinal canal that compresses the nerves traveling through the lower back into the legs.
  • Thoracic Stenosis
    Defined as spinal stenosis in the thoracic, or middle, section of the back, roughly classified as the area where the ribs attach to the spine.

Spinal Fracture

  • Occurs when one of the bones in the spinal column breaks.

Spinal Tumor

  • Masses of abnormal cells in the spinal cord that have grown out of control.

Brain Conditions Treated


Brain Tumor

    • Brain Mass This refers to a mass or growth of abnormal cells in the brain.
    • Glioma, Astrocytoma
      This refers to a malignant tumor of the glial tissue of the nervous system.
    • Glioblastoma
      is the most common and most aggressive malignant primary brain tumor in humans.
    • Meningioma
      This refers to a diverse set of tumors arising from the meninges, the membranous layers surrounding the central nervous system.
    • Pituitary Tumor, Pituitary Mass, Pituitary Adenoma
      These are slow growing and typically benign tumors arising from cells in the pituitary gland.

Brain Aneurysm, Cerebral Aneurysm

  • This is an abnormal, weak spot on a blood vessel that causes an outward bulging or ballooning of the arterial wall.

Vascular Malformation, AVM

  • This is a tangle of abnormal and poorly formed blood vessels (arteries and veins). They have a higher rate of bleeding than normal vessels.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

  • This refers to a painful condition of the nerve responsible for most facial sensation.
