Why choose minimally invasive spine surgery over open? Traditional, open spine surgery involves cutting or stripping the muscles from the spine. But today, a TLIF may be performed using minimally invasive spine surgery, a treatment that involves small incisions and muscle dilation, allowing the surgeon to gently separate the muscles surrounding the spine rather than cutting them. A minimally invasive approach preserves the surrounding muscular and vascular function and minimizes scarring. Come see Dr. Didinsky today! 262-764-5595.
Why cervical fusion, otherwise known as ACDF? If you have pain in the neck and or arms, a lack of coordination, and most importantly, numbness or weakness in the arms, forearms or fingers for a period of time. The culprits can be a disc herniation and or arthritis. Fusion is typically only recommended after non-surgical treatment methods have failed. Dr. Didinsky takes all factors into consideration including age, symptoms, quality of life and health. Typical return to work is 3-6 weeks depending on the type of work. However, there are other potential surgical options short of fusion surgery that can be beneficial. Call today to make an appointment to see if you are a candidate that can benefit from these procedures. Don’t live with pain! 262-764-5595.
