Procedures Offered from Spine Institute Northwest
Endoscopically Assisted Spinal Decompression
This treatment treats stenosis of the thoracic area, lumbar spine region or cervical regions of the body. The procedure aims to treat the regions that are the cause of your pain, weakness in the arms or legs, or numbness associated with your condition. Learn more.
Facet Fixation and Lumbar Interbody Fusion
When facet joints of the spine or intervertebral disc become worn you can develop low back pain, weakness or numbness in the area. Minimally invasive endoscopic facet fixation and interbody fusion works by fusing facet joints together which will then thwart the irritation caused by movement in that area of your spine. Interbody implant works to re-expend the disc space in your spine, allowing space for the spinal cord and nerves to be less compressed. This may also be an option with this procedure. Learn more
Endoscopic Assisted Nerve Excision
If you have damaged or severely worn facet joints and are experiencing pain in the thoracic, lumbar, cervical or sacral region of your spine, endoscopically assisted nerve excision may be the right option for you. This minimally invasive technique is executed to interfere with the pain signals of the nerve without impacting any of your motor functioning. Learn more.
