Lumbar Spine Surgery
Lumbar spine (low back) conditions can be unbearably painful. Orthopedic spine specialist Dr. Martin Jones brings over 25 years of experience with lumbar spine surgery to Neurological Surgery Associates, treating even the most difficult of cases. He uses cutting-edge diagnostic tools for a precise diagnosis. He then discusses the results of the tests in-depth with his patients and recommends a unique treatment plan for each individual.
When it comes to your spine, you need a surgeon you can trust. Dr. Jones’s expertise in orthopedic spine surgery and sports medicine allows him to offer sound treatment for a wide variety of conditions involving the lumbar spine. No matter what brings you to our office, it is likely that Dr. Jones has seen it and performed back surgery to repair it many times before.
Lumbar spine surgeries fall into two main categories: lumbar decompression and lumbar fusion. Lumbar decompression procedures treat pinched nerves, which commonly result from a herniated disc, spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebrae), or lumbar spinal stenosis. A lumbar discectomy, microdiscectomy, or laminectomy will immediately provide relief from nerve pain by removing bone or tissue, giving the nerve enough room to heal.
Lumbar fusion procedures secure the vertebrae in place with bone grafts and/or spinal instrumentation (plates, screws, rods) to treat the pain of unnatural vertebral movement.
