Conditions and Treatments

Lumbar Treatments

Lumbar Microdiscectomy

Lumbar microdiscectomy, also called microlumbar discectomy (MLD), is one of the most common and successful minimally invasive surgeries to treat lumbar herniated discs and spinal stenosis.

Lumbar Laminectomy

Lumbar laminectomy, also called lumbar decompression surgery, involves removing large arthritic bone spurs that are compressing nerves.

Lumbar Fusion

If the spinal arthritis has progressed to spinal instability, the patient may require a combination of lumbar decompression (laminectomy) and lumbar fusion to stabilize the spine and alleviate chronic back pain. Lumbar fusion, also called spinal fusion, is a reliable surgery that has been performed for decades.
