Common Spine Treatments.

Minimally Invasive Spinal Fusion
Open incision spinal fusion procedures have been performed for many years. Recent advancements in spine surgery have allowed spine specialists to perform fusion procedures in a minimally invasive manner. A smaller incision is used, less surgical trauma is caused, and recovery is much quicker

Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR)
Cervical artificial disc replacement (ADR) removes and replaces a damaged cervical intervertebral disc that causes neck and/or upper extremity pain. Following a quick recovery, the new disc functions just like a healthy one—motion is not limited, nerve roots are not compressed.

Minimally Invasive Laminectomy
Laminectomy is one of the most common spine surgeries. Although laminectomies have been performed as open incision procedures for a very long time, most laminectomies are now performed minimally invasively. A much smaller incision is used, less surgical trauma occurs, and recovery time is shortened. The purpose of the procedure is to remove the back part of a vertebra or lamina and decompress a pinched nerve or nerves.

Minimally Invasive Discectomy
A minimally invasive discectomy (microdiscectomy) removes portions of nerve compressing lumbar intervertebral disc that causes lower back and/or lower extremity pain. A microdiscectomy is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia.

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF)
The cervical spine connects the skull to upper back and protects the spinal cord. Intervertebral discs lie between cervical vertebrae C1-C7 and help facilitate movement and reduce the load placed directly on the bone. Damaged discs that cause neck and/or upper extremity pain sometimes require surgery.

Sacroiliac Joint Fusion

The sacroiliac joint connects the sacrum to the hips and evenly distributes shock between the upper and lower body. Sacroiliac joint fusion is a surgical procedure to fuse the sacroiliac joint. The procedure is performed when moving the sacroiliac joint causes pain and possibly other symptoms.

Kyphoplasty is minimally invasive spine surgery to treat symptomatic compression fractures that do not respond to nonsurgical treatments options. Kyphoplasty is performed using a small incision—less surgical trauma occurs and recovery time is shortened. Click To Learn More

Revision Spine Surgery
Spine surgery is more advanced and effective than ever. The overwhelming majority of patients’ results are significant and sustained. In rare instances not caused by the surgeon or patient, spine surgery may not relieve symptoms and a revision spine surgery may need to be performed. The goal of revision spine surgery is to decrease symptoms and treat the condition causing them.

Facet Joint Injections
The facet joints are very important because they move the spine. Like all joints, facet joints are covered in smooth cartilage that allows adjacent bones to move smoothly and easily. Osteoarthritis damages facet joint cartilage and causes inflammation and pain. Severe facet joint osteoarthritis can cause nerve compression and bone-on-bone rubbing. The key to effective facet joint osteoarthritis treatment is an early diagnosis. Nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment options quickly decrease symptoms.

Epidural Steroid Injection
An epidural steroid injection is a minimally invasive procedure that treats nerve inflammation and pain. The outpatient procedure is performed using a mild sedative and local anesthesia.

Spinal Nerve Root Block
A spinal nerve root block is a commonly performed—and perhaps the oldest—minimally invasive spine procedure. A spinal nerve root block stops a nerve from sending pain signals to the brain. First, a mild sedative is given to help the patient relax. Next, the patient is carefully positioned face down on a comfortable table with a special resting place for the head and neck.

Spinal Cord Stimulator
A spinal cord stimulator is a spine pain relief device. The stimulator is implanted into the patient’s back and sends electrical impulses that block nerve pain signals to the brain.

Scoliosis Correction
Scoliosis correction is a surgical procedure to straighten the spine. Adolescents and adults may undergo a scoliosis correction when nonsurgical treatment options do not improve scoliosis symptoms. A posterior approach (from the back) is usually used on adolescents and a posterior, anterior (from the front), or lateral (from the side) approach is used on adults, depending on their condition.

Success Stories

Dr. Jarmon was extremely welcoming. He explained in great detail the issue with my shoulder, and even drew a picture for me to describe what was happening in layman’s terms. I have recommended him more than once already.
