Our philosophy is to be as minimally invasive as possible, so we offer pain management solutions as well as surgery when it’s necessary.
Minimally Invasive Surgery in Decatur
When the symptoms are too severe, or aren’t responding well to pain management, then surgery becomes an option. However, we offer many minimally invasive procedures that have faster recovery times, less scarring, and are outpatient so you don’t have to spend extra days away from home. Our goal is to get you feeling better as safely as possible.
We’ve helped many patients become pain-free with our endoscopic discectomy procedure, which involves using an endoscope, allowing our surgeons to use only a small incision point. That’s because endoscopes are a thin tube-like device specially made for feeding surgical devices through, so our doctors can reach the problem area precisely. Another minimally invasive option is our laser spine surgery. No incision is necessary with this procedure because the laser is fed through a needle, which is inserted at the area causing issues. The heat from the laser addresses herniated discs, dissolving the portion of the disc that is pinching nerves and causing pain.
Open MRI Machines in Decatur
Magnetic Resonance Imaging machines, or MRIs, are an integral part of medical diagnosis. They use strong magnetic fields and radio waves to generate images of the internal structures of the body, such as the spine. Your spine specialist doctor is able to use the MRI scan to much more accurately diagnose what and where is causing pain or discomfort. We have open MRI machines which are more comfortable than your typical enclosed MRI. They are good for people who have claustrophobia, and for people with limited range of motion since you can more easily adjust your positioning on the machine. The benefits of having MRI’s in house is that you can have your imaging tests done at the same location as your doctor’s appointment, so you don’t have to schedule multiple appointments with multiple different physicians.
