Endoscopic decompression procedures are performed in order to remove pressure that is placed on the spinal cord and/or nerve roots located in the spinal column. Compression in the spine can be caused by a number of reasons producing a condition called Stenosis. Lumbar stenosis is a condition in which the spinal canal (where spinal nerves pass) is narrowed and causes symptoms by compressing the spinal nerves. Stenosis can be acquired or congenital.
I love Dr ceruelo. He treats me as if I am family. I have been coming to his office for almost 5 years now. His assistant Karen is always very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this doctor to any of my family or friends.
Some spinal conditions that can cause bone or tissue to enter into the foramina include:
Freeman Spine and Pain Institute can treat all of these conditions by an endoscopic decompression procedure. Freeman Spine and Pain Institute specialize in a number of minimally invasive endoscopic decompression procedures. During the procedure, a small incision is made so that the doctor can insert a tube and tiny camera into the patients spinal canal. The doctor then inserts instruments, including a laser and an irrigation tube, allowing the doctor to remove bone, ligament, and/or disc tissue widening and clearing the spinal canal. This in turn takes the pressure off, decompressing the nerve.
The endoscopic decompression procedure is considered a minimally invasive procedure. It requires a small incision and unlike more invasive laminectomy procedures used for decompression of a Stenosis most posterior spinal structures are left intact. This minimizes postoperative weakening of the spine resulting in a shorter rehabilitation and faster recovery of function.
They are truly amazing here, Dr. Freeman is a great doctor, the entire staff is wonderful and especially Anna a very caring person, Dr. Freeman’s staff is always friendly, they really take their time with you, caring and make you feel like part of the “family”. My husband has been seeing Dr. Freeman for a while because of a spinal injury and they definitely did for him what other doctors he previously saw couldn’t, so when I injured my back thats right where I went. Dr. Freeman did some non invasive procedures and sure enough before I knew I was standing straight and pain free, had a shoulder injury which he also took care of with the same great results as my back, absolutely recommend Redefined Health Care
