Orthopedic & Wellness, LLC is a multi-specialty practice dedicated to treating painful spinal conditions using state of the art techniques. Orthopedic & Wellness provides cutting edge endoscopic and minimally invasive spine surgery, offering you a safe and effective alternative to open neck or back surgery. In addition to performing endoscopic spine procedures, we also offer traditional orthopedic surgeries such arthroscopies of the peripheral joints (knees and shoulders). For herniated and degenerated discs or stenosis of the cervical, and lumbar spine, the best and most recent medical evidence has shown that outpatient endoscopic spinal surgery provides equal outcome results with less cost, faster recovery and fewer complications to than traditional open spine surgery.
Spine surgery is usually done using light sedation and sometimes under general anesthesia. Mechanical and automated instruments and sometimes laser and/or bi-polar radio frequency technology may be used to clean out the diseased disc and bony spurs. Recovery from the procedure is usually 1-2 weeks.
Endoscopic spine surgery allows the surgeon to correct spine and disc conditions, minimizing the risk of complications caused by open back surgery. Surgical incisions are minimal, recovery is quicker and there is less scar formation. The function of spinal musculature is expected to return to normal after rehabilitation since they incur minimal trauma with this technique. Each day, patients come into Orthopedic & Wellness for spinal surgery and walk out that same day with their conditions effectively treated.
