Minimally Invasive Posterior Facet Joint Fusion w/DTRAXS Procedure

The minimally invasive posterior facet joint fusion with DTRAX is an effective solution to cervical spinal decompression or stabilization. The DTRAX system is designed to increase foraminal spacing, which resulting in cervical nerve root decompression.  It is also designed to provide a minimally invasive posterior stabilization of the cervical spine.

What is our minimally invasive posterior facet joint fusion with DTRAX?

Our minimally invasive posterior facet joint fusion with DTRAX is an advanced procedure used to treat nerve  root compression or to assist with cervical spinal fusion.

Performed through a small incision, our skilled surgeons enter the affected area, through the back of the neck, utilizing real time 3 dimensional X-rays to guide the procedure.

Once the surgeon has located the affected area, he will insert the DTRAX device. The DTRAX device is an implant used to help alleviate neck and arm pain, providing indirect decompression of the compressed nerve roots and stabilizing the cervical area through fusion.

Advantages

Unlike traditional open decompression surgeries, the minimally invasive posterior facet joint fusion with DTRAX allows the surgeon to enter the affected area to increase the space for cervical nerve roots through a small incision.

Because this approach eliminates the need for a large incision and invasive measures, patients are able to get back to their daily routines much quicker. Other benefits include:

  • Little to no hospital stay
  • Small incision
  • Reduced risk of infection and complication
  • Minimal trauma/blood loss
  • Minimal scarring
  • Short recovery
