Spine Care and Surgery – The Absolute Gold Standard

Spine Care and Surgery – The Absolute Gold Standard

The mission of the Atlanta Spine Institute is: “to give the absolute gold standard in spinal care and if surgery is warranted, to do the least amount and perform the least invasive surgical procedure to fix the problem, with an eye on the patient’s future spine health.”

The Atlanta Spine Institute specializes in the use of cutting-edge, minimally invasive techniques and methods to perform adult reconstructive procedures for the correction of cervical and lumbar spine disorders.  Minimal Access Spinal Technologies make possible the treatment of herniated discs and other spinal disorders in a manner that is much less invasive.  These technologies permit smaller incisions and less trauma to the surrounding tissue.  Recovery can be shorter and less painful.

New Innovations

pjtwsfilmsBack pain is all too familiar to many Americans, 80 percent of whom will experience at least one severe episode at some time during their lives. A common casue of chronic back pain is degenerative disc disease. With this condition, the cartilaginous disc that serves as a cushioned shock absorber between the vertebrae becomes arthritic and unstable, often causing excruciating pain. Disc Arthroplasty or total disc replacement is one option in selected cases for the treatment of degenerative disc disease.

Disc Arthroplasty or total disc replacement involves removing the degenerative disc and inserting an artificial one made of a cobalt-chromium alloy and polyethylene (metal and hard plastic) between the two vertebral bones. The artificial disc technology may allow patients to maintain the motion of the affected disc space.

The Atlanta Spine Institute is proud to be on of the few select facilities in the US and internationally with the in-house knowledge and skill to offer this next evolutionary step in spine surgery.
