Procedure

The different types of procedures used are:

Osteotomy Surgery

  • The bone ends are realigned and allowed to heal. 
  • Spinal instrumentation and fusion may be combined with an osteotomy to stabilize the spine during healing.

Decompression 

Procedures like laminectomies, decompress the spinal canal and the associated nerves, restoring or preventing the neurologic dysfunction. 

Spinal instrumentation & fusion 

  • These are surgical procedures, which are used to correct the spinal deformity and also to provide permanent stability to the spinal column. 
  • This procedure helps in joining and solidifying at the level where a spinal element has been damaged or removed. 
  • Instrumentation which are used in this procedure are medically designed hardware such as rods, bars, wires, and screws. These devices hold the spine straight during fusion.
