Motion Preservation

Fusion is not necessary in most surgical interventions. Most spine pathology that responds favorably to surgical intervention is due to compression of nervous structure. We employ a number of means to effectively decompress nervous tissue while attempting to avoid fusion when possible. These means include:

  • Cervical disc replacement
  • Lumbar disc replacement
  • Cervical laminoplasty
  • Decompressive lumbar laminectomy without fusion

Fusion should only be used in cases of instability or severe degeneration.
