Spine Surgery Offered in Carson City, NV & Surrounding Areas
If you believe that you might be a candidate for spine surgery and live in Carson City, Nevada, visit Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic. Our multi-disciplinary team of spine surgeons has extensive firsthand experience performing a variety of spine surgery procedures, which have helped countless local residents get back to full strength since we opened for business in 1966.
To determine the spine surgery that is appropriate for you, the first step is to have the exact cause and location of the condition identified. This usually entails the use of an open MRI, which allows our team to clearly see the problem area and develop a comprehensive plan for the procedure before the operation begins. As the spinal canal is a highly complex area of the body, this information is invaluable because often a variety of factors contribute to a patient’s discomfort, including the presence of herniated intervertebral disc material, bone spurs, misaligned vertebrae, and other degenerative spine conditions.
As an orthopedic spine specialist, Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic provides many different types of spine surgery in the Carson City, NV, area, including:
- Scoliosis surgery
- Discectomy and microdiscectomy
- Fusion surgery (ACDF, TLIF, and X-LIF)
- Artificial disc replacement (cervical and lumbar)
- Minimally invasive surgery (coflex and interspinous spacers)
However, while spine surgery can be highly effective, it is usually reserved for patients who experience extreme pain or who have exhausted the other, non-surgical treatment options available to them. In fact, at Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, many of our patients benefit from our variety of non-operative treatments, which can often help alleviate discomfort without the need for surgery. This provides peace of mind to our patients that, when they visit us, they know we’ll explain all of their options and help them make the right decision for their unique condition and situation.
