Alternatives to Cervical & Lumbar Spinal Fusion Surgery
Friday, September 28, 2018

The TAHA Procedure

At Advanced Neurosurgery Inc., we are highly skilled in multiple surgical techniques that allow us to pick the procedure that is best for that particular patient. These techniques include alternatives to spinal fusion. We are considered to be the experts in dealing with patients with special needs. This also includes procedures where the patients would choose the surgery they would like done and how they would prefer to have their issue resolved. This is a relatively new treatment concept, but the TAHA Procedure basically revolutionizes neurosurgery and spinal surgery. It allows a patient all the freedom they may need to fully understand what procedures can be conducted. And also what would suit their demographic specifically.

Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement

Artificial cervical disc replacements, otherwise known as cervical disc arthroplasty. This enables the doctors to remove a patient’s herniated disc. This is what is responsible for the patient’s severe pain. ACDR also helps with treatments of bone spurs, spinal decompression, and nerve decompression. However, some patients feel it is essential that they do not partake in spinal fusion, therefore, at their request, the disc is replaced instead. This is done instead of the bones being fused together only to meet the needs of the patient who would be going through the TAHA procedure.

Cervical Laminoplasty

A rather excellent alternative treatment used by professionals to avoid fusion is called cervical laminoplasty. Laminoplasty involves the reconstruction in ways of the lower back cervical spine basically done to drastically and quickly extend the size of the spinal canal. The spine is disconnected and reconnected with a spacer to give the nerves much more room to operate. This enables the nerves to free up (those caught in the vertebra). This technique is considered revolutionary and is often used to treat cases of spinal cord compression. Fusions being made on multiple levels are especially associated with loss of range of motion. Along with this it is also directly associated to chronic neck pain, and the development of adjacent level disease. This disease can even show up multiple years after the initial surgery.

But it boils down to coming to the right doctor or the right people for the right treatment which would leave you in a better state. The idea is to get back one’s functionality and to resolve their pains without taking a risk.

These are the issues which make you rely on neurosurgery to take care of:
  • Endoscopic brain surgery
  • Pituitary tumor surgery
  • Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (CyberKnife & Gamma Knife)
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Brain and spinal trauma
  • Interventional stroke management
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Craniotomy for brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations, and aneurysms
  • Carotid endarterectomy
  • Minimally invasive brain and spine surgery
