These are the most common disorders we see, from outpatient lumbar microdiscectomies and laminectomies, to more extensive cervical and lumbar fusion operations among other procedures.
Annually, hundreds of patients who have complex spinal deformities such as adult degenerative scoliosis, prior lumbar or cervical fusions or even previously treated childhood/teenage scoliosis undergo successful surgery. The surgeons at NEBH frequently receive referrals of patients from elsewhere in New England for the surgical care of complex spinal conditions such as these.
Minimally invasive procedures benefit some patients by potentially facilitating quicker recoveries from surgery as a result of smaller incisions and less soft tissue disruption. Procedures frequently performed by NEBH surgeons include posterior cervical foraminotomies, lumbar laminectomies, endoscopic spine surgery and a number of lumbar fusions procedures, including lateral lumbar fusions (such as DLIF/OLIF/XLIF procedures).
Computer and Image guided systems are available to guide the placement of implants into the spine where necessary for certain procedures. This can, in some cases, be more accurate than traditional means that do not use such systems. NEBH has a long and extensive track record in using a variety of state-of-the-art navigation systems, and currently is a regional leader in use of the Medtronic Stealth navigation system and the Medtronic Mazor Robotic system.
