Over the last several years, there have been tremendous advances in the way spinal surgery is performed. What used to be an open incision and complex procedure has been replaced by minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS). To find exceptional spinal care, you don’t have to go any further than Dr. Jason M Cuellar. He is a fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon who provides compassionate treatment of patients with spinal disorders both non-surgical and surgical. He focuses on total disc replacement (artificial disc replacement) and minimally invasive spine surgery. His practice includes treatment of various disorders of the spine such as cervical disc herniation, cervical radiculopathy, cervical myelopathy, neck pain, cervical stenosis, cervical disc degeneration, lumbar disc herniation, lumbar radiculopathy, lumbar stenosis, lumbar degenerative disc disease, spinal fusion in 90210, and low back pain using the most advanced surgical techniques.
Spinal fusion in 90210 may be indicated to reduce significant pain and symptoms that have not responded to non-surgical treatment, to improve spine stability, or correct a significant spinal deformity. Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure to permanently join two or more vertebrae in the spine. The connected vertebrae fuse together to form a one solid bone and immobilize that segment of the spine. If the problem originates in a disc, the cushion between each vertebra, then disc replacement might be your best choice to resolve your back pain. Disc replacement is the substitution of an artificial disc for an unhealthy one. It is performed to alleviate the symptoms of degenerative disc disease, which occurs when the discs wear out from the effects of long-term stress and strain on the spine due to aging or as a result of injury. An artificial disc is designed to imitate the functions of a healthy disc by allowing spine to maintain its natural mobility.
Patients who have undergone spinal fusion in 90210 are usually up and walking soon after surgery. Dr. Cuellar has surrounded himself with an exceptional support staff who will monitor your healing process and provide guidelines for a resumption of activity along with recommendations for supportive therapies.
