Your spine, from the base of your skull to your tailbone, is central to your well-being. It provides structure, support, and protection for the spinal cord, which relays signals between your brain and body. If you’re experiencing back pain or issues with the shape or growth of your spine, our expert team is here to help with the best treatment options available.

Spinal disorders can include:

  • Deformities present from birth
  • Conditions typically identified in adolescence, such as scoliosis
  • Degenerative conditions that affect your spine as you age
  • Injuries and illnesses that can occur at any age.

Any of these conditions can result in pain, impaired mobility, and other effects.

Spinal Surgeries and Treatments

At Monadnock Orthopaedic Associates, we offer a range of proven, effective surgical procedures to treat spinal conditions. Our focus is on minimally invasive techniques to promote faster recovery. Our services include:

Cervical disc replacement

We replace damaged cervical discs with artificial ones to preserve the range of motion and alleviate pain.

Anterior cervical decompression and fusion

Through a small incision in the front of the neck, we relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, stabilizing the spine by fusing two or more vertebrae.

Laminectomy

This procedure enlarges the spinal canal in the lower back to relieve nerve pressure, reducing pain and improving mobility.

Lumbar Spine Fusion

Using a minimally invasive technique, we fuse up to three vertebrae to add stability to the spine. This is particularly effective for lower back pain. Most patients experience no significant limitations in movement post-procedure.

Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty

Vertebroplasty: We inject medical cement into a fractured spinal bone to relieve pain and strengthen the spine.
Kyphoplasty: This involves creating space for the cement injection with a balloon device, offering additional support and pain relief.
