Conditions and Treatments

Cervical Conditions

First performed in the 1980s, minimally invasive spinal surgery (MIS) was introduced to offer patients less disruptive and less painful surgical solutions for many spinal disorders. The field continues to make rapid advances and allows Dr. Singh to be among the Midwest’s most experienced spine surgeon to treat an ever-evolving list of spinal disorders including:

Herniated Disc

A herniated disc is a condition that can involve any part of the spine, but is most common in the neck (cervical spine) or the lower back (lumbar spine).

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the space for the spinal cord or nerve branches. More specifically, as the spine degenerates over time, it can lead to the formation of bone spurs.

Radiculopathy/Arm Pain

Radiculopathy refers to symptoms resulting from compression or irritation of the spinal nerve root at its point of connection to the spinal column. This injury can also be referred to as a pinched nerve.

Spondylotic Myelopathy

A condition where degeneration occurs in the neck resulting in spinal cord compression. This condition may result in weakness in the arms, burning in the hands and difficulty with walking.
