Our implantation of internal bone simulation may performed using both the traditional open approach, or utilizing state-of-the-art minimally invasive techniques.
Because our skilled surgeons can perform the implantation of internal bone simulation both traditionally and minimally invasive, the advantages of the procedure may vary.
All of our procedures are performed by expert surgeons who are fellowship trained in the specific procedures that they specialize in, including the implantation of internal bone simulation.
What is our implantation of internal bone simulation?
To begin this procedure the surgeon will make an incision at the level indicated as the primary source of the patient’s pain. This can be done both traditionally or minimally invasive. Our surgeons may also choose to perform this procedure in conjunction with another stabilization if necessary.
Once the surgeon has located the appropriate are, an internal bone growth stimulator is implanted. This device is small and can be implanted in a soft pocket of tissue under the skin in the lower back to the side of spine. The bone growth stimulator delivers small electrical currents directly to the area in the spine where bone growth is to occur.
Common spine conditions treated by our implantation of internal bone simulation?
Our implantation of internal bone simulation is able to assist in regenerating bone, which can contribute to the treatment of a number of common conditions.
- Pseudo Arthorosis
- Individuals who bones are not likely to fuse without intervention, such as diabetics and smokers.
If you are suffering from these or other conditions, you may be a candidate for our implantation of internal bone simulation
Common symptoms relieved by our implantation of internal bone simulation?
The implantation of internal bone simulation is able to assist in the treatment of a number of conditions, which may ultimately assist in the irradiation of symptoms in most patients. These symptoms include:
- Radiating pain
- Isolated pain
- Inability to stand or walk for extended durations
- Trouble moving freely
- Pain when bending or moving
- Nerve pain such as tingling, numbness or weakness
