Depending on your condition, surgical intervention may be required to help alleviate pain and discomfort. The following types of spinal surgery are available at Buderim Private Hospital:
- Laminectomy: Removing the back part of the bone (lamina) over the spinal column to relieve nerve root compression (pinched nerve) in the spinal column.
- Discectomy: Removing a portion of a disc to relieve pressure on a nerve.
- Spinal fusion surgery: Permanent fusion of two or more vertebrae for more stability. This may be performed to correct a deformity or to relieve pain.
