MIAMI MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE SURGEON
Facet Thermal Ablation
When you are suffering from back pain, you deserve to know your treatment options and the choices you have for relief. For some, this may be traditional pain management efforts, but for others, a minimally invasive spinal surgical procedure can be the ticket to reducing or eliminating back pain. If your back suffering is caused by the degeneration of facet joints, the cartilage discs located between the vertebrae of the spine, then you may be a candidate for facet thermal ablation surgery.
At Alexander Bone & Spine Institute, our Miami spinal surgeon has been helping clients across South Florida for years. Using a combination of advanced technology and treatments, we specifically tailor our treatments to suit your needs. Don't hesitate when you suffer from back pain! We can speak with you about whether minimally invasive surgery is right for you in your consultation.
Choosing Alexander Bone & Spine Institute For Your Procedure
Facet thermal ablation is a surgical procedure aimed at the relief of back pain caused by unwanted tissue in the facet joint. A laser is used to both remove the unwanted tissue and deaden the nerve that is relaying pain signals.
This is primarily caused by:
- Facet Joint Syndrome
- Annular Tearing
- Degenerative Facet Joints
Our minimally invasive spine surgery involves making a small incision in the back and inserting a small tube that is used to deploy the laser. After the procedure, you should not feel any pain around that damaged joint. You may want to consider making some lifestyle changes, including the addition of light exercise, since the damage to the spine still exists. We strive to make the treatment and surgical process as painless as possible and shorten the recovery time to allow you to get back on with your life following a surgical procedure.
