There are a host of conditions that may require spinal surgery. Back surgery is usually the course of last resort. However, when spinal surgery is required, Tyler Neurosurgical Associates will recommend you the best option.

Back surgery is often necessary when a patient has a bulging disc that is pressing on a nerve causing pain. A back surgery procedure called a laminectomy is then performed. In a laminectomy, part of the lamina is removed to decompress the disc.

Tyler Neurosurgical has spine surgery specialists who can diagnose and treat many types of severe spine issues

In more severe cases such as disc herniation and severe nerve compression, a back surgery called a discectomy is used. This procedure involves the surgeon removing a portion of the disc itself in order to relieve nerve pressure.

Another of the more common spinal surgeries is a spinal fusion. When the spine is deformed, or when it becomes unstable from injury or severe arthritis, the spine may need to be fused to make it stable and to relieve pain. When the spine is fused, joints in the spine are joined together using plates and screws. Over time, the joints will grow together thus fusing that part of the spine.
