Spondylosis Treatment & Surgery Options
In mild to moderate cases of spondylosis, non-surgical treatment options such as: lifestyle changes, over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs, physical therapy, cortisone shots, and pain medication can be effective.
In severe cases or when non-surgical treatments for spondylosis fail to provide relief, surgical treatment may be recommended. The patented Bonati Spine Procedures are performed through a small incision in the back while the patient is conscious under local anesthetic and IV sedation. Since the patient is awake during spinal surgery, anesthesia risk is minimal and post-operative recovery is shortened.
When surgery is required, The Bonati Spine Procedures offer an array of patented surgical techniques for treatment of spondylosis, including but not limited to:
• ARTHROSCOPIC DECOMPRESSION for Spondylosis
Posterior approach — the procedure is performed on the patient to remove bone spurs and decompress enlarged ligaments that are compressing the spinal cord and nerves leading to the extremities. This procedure is usually employed to treat Degenerative Disc Disease and/or facet joint arthritis. However, patients who have had previous fusions with residual pain can also benefit from it as well.
• ENDOSCOPIC FORAMINOTOMY for Spondylosis
This is a procedure in which the foramen of the vertebrae — the canal through which a nerve root exits the spine — is returned to its normal width after it has been narrowed due to degenerative disc disease or spinal arthritis. Bone spurs, scar tissue or bulging and herniated discs that form as a result of Degenerative Disc Disease or spinal arthritis may narrow the foraminal canal, causing different spinal disorders. The Bonati Arthroscopic Laser Foraminotomy widens the foraminal canal to it’s normal width.
