Feel like you’ve tried everything you can to alleviate your back pain? If braces, over-the-counter medications, or physical therapy are not providing relief, you don’t need to fear an extensive surgery. With the development of minimally invasive surgical techniques, spine surgery no longer has to mean a lengthy hospital stay, an extended recovery period, and a large scar. With minimally invasive spine surgery, the Spine Institute Northwest can offer you relief from pain in an outpatient setting, even with the very latest in surgical techniques.
Regenerative medicine represents the cutting edge of minimally invasive spine surgery. Combining stem cell tissue transplantation with minimally invasive surgical techniques, regenerative medicine offers the potential to restore your spine health. Adult stem cells are harvested from your own body, and injected into the painful tissue in your spine. There, these stem cells regenerate, helping to rebuild your spine.
Regenerative medicine can be used to treat a wide range of causes of back and neck pain. These include herniated or bulging discs, annular tears, ruptured or torn discs, and degenerative discs. The surgical team at the Spine Institute Northwest can help give you an accurate diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for you. For many patients, combining laser spine surgery with regenerative medicine can provide relief from chronic back pain. With a small incision, recovery times are faster, scarring is minimal, and the risk of complications or infections is reduced. You’ve already lived with pain long enough — why wait any longer to feel better? Start on the journey to get back your life. Call the Spine Institute Northwest today.
