Surgical treatment for spinal disorders

What kind of surgery do you do for spinal disorders?

Surgery is both burdensome and risky.

Therefore, most patients may not want to undergo surgery as much as possible even if they are actually suffering from various symptoms.

I have as many other treatment options as possible, such as block treatment.

The actual treatment is as described on this homepage.

However, there are certainly symptoms and situations that cannot be improved except by surgery.

In such cases, we will consult with you about surgery.

I make use of my surgical experience in neurosurgery

With as small a scratch as possible so as not to burden the body

I use a microscope and an endoscope so that my nerves are not strained.

For lumbar surgery, we use an endoscope to check the affected area with a higher-magnification image while pursuing safer and less burdensome treatment.

As a result, the size of surgical scratches is also reduced.

The typical ones are explained below.

Cervical laminoplasty

It is a method to improve the condition where the spinal cord is compressed in the cervical spine, such as cervical spondylotic myelopathy.

Grooves are made on both sides of the lamina, and artificial bone is placed on one side to widen the lamina and relieve pressure on the nerves from the back side.

surgical wound is about 4cm length

Scratch size: 4 cm Hospitalization period: About 1 week.

Anterior cervical decompression and fusion

Drill the intervertebral discs of the cervical spine and the osteophytes (bones that pop out like thorns and push nerves). Relieves pressure on nerves. After removing the intervertebral disc, there will be a gap, so put an artificial bone in it. In order for the artificial bone to fuse with the surrounding bone, it is necessary to wear a collar around the neck for some time after surgery to restrict movement.

Scratch size: 4 cm

Hospitalization period: About one week.

Lumbar partial laminectomy

Shave a part of the hip bone and remove a part of the ossification of the ligament to relieve pressure on the nerves.

Conventionally, surgery was performed while looking under a microscope, and the size of the scratch was about 3.5 cm.

Microscopic surgery is also a safe and well-established method, but we are incorporating endoscopic surgery to reduce the strain on the body.
