Neurology at Audubon Surgery Center
Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system.
Some of the top procedures performed at Audubon Surgery Center are:
- Spine-Anterior fusion is a medical procedure usually performed to correct spinal deformities or relieve pain in the lower back and legs caused by degenerative disc disease. The goal of the surgery is to fuse the affected vertebrae together so they can heal properly. Spine-Anterior fusion is a fairly common procedure, and most patients experience significant improvements in pain and function after surgery.
- Laminectomy is a surgical procedure that involves removal of the lamina, a portion of the vertebral bone. Laminectomy is performed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Laminectomy may be performed as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with other procedures, such as vertebroplasty or discectomy. Laminectomy is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for relieving pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.
- Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat fractures of the vertebrae. Kyphoplasty is considered an effective treatment for vertebral fractures and has been shown to improve pain, function, and quality of life. Kyphoplasty may also be used to prevent future fractures by restoring height to the vertebra and increasing its strength. Kyphoplasty is a safe and effective procedure that can provide significant relief from vertebral fractures.
