Know About Low Back Pain (Lumbar) and Spinal Surgery By Dr. Aron D. Rovner

  1. 1. Spinal Surgery And Lumbar (Low Back) Orthopedic Dr. Aron D. Rovner
  2. 2. Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) • Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) is a spine surgery that involves approaching the spine from the front of the body to remove disc or bone material from in between two adjacent lumbar vertebrae. The procedure may be performed either as an open surgery or using minimally invasive techniques. • Ref: http://www.spinesurgeonnewyork.net/anteriorlumbar-interbody-fusion.html
  3. 3. How Is An ALIF Performed?
  4. 4. Lumbar Laminectomy • A lumbar laminectomy is a spine surgery that involves removing bone to relieve excess pressure on the spinal nerve(s) in the lumbar spine, or lower back. A lumbar laminectomy can be performed to relieve symptoms such as back pain and radiating leg pain. • Ref: http://www.spinesurgeonnewyork.net/lumbarlaminectomy.html -
  5. 5. How Is A Lumbar Laminectomy Performed?
  6. 6. Lumbar Microdiscectomy • Pain in the lower back (lumbar spine) and legs, among other symptoms, may occur when an intervertebral disc herniates when the annulus fibrosus (tough, outer ring) of the disc tears and the nucleus pulposus (soft, jelly-like center) squeezes out, and places pressure on, or "pinches," an adjacent nerve root. • Lumbar microdiscectomy is an operation that involves using a surgical microscope and microsurgical techniques to access and treat the lumbar spine. By providing magnification and illumination, the microscope allows for a limited dissection. Only that portion of the herniated disc, which is pinching one or more nerve roots, is removed. The term discectomy is derived from the Latin words discus (flat, circular object or plate) and -ectomy (removal).
  7. 7. Spinal Fusion Surgery • Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure that involves placing bone graft material between adjacent vertebrae to promote bone growth that joins together, or "fuses," the two structures. In patients for whom it's appropriate, the procedure may be performed using minimally invasive surgical techniques.
  8. 8. Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) • A transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) is a type of spine surgery that involves approaching the spine from the back, or posterior, of the body to place bone graft between two vertebrae. The procedure may be performed using minimally invasive surgical techniques. • Ref: http://www.spinesurgeonnewyork.net/transforami nal-lumbar-interbody-fusion.html
  9. 9. What are Vertebral Compression Fractures? • Vertebral compression fractures, or VCF's, occur when bones in the spine are broken. They can occur from trauma, such as a car accident or fall, but are most commonly the result of osteoporosis which causes weakened bones. VCF's can also occur from other conditions that cause weakened bones, such as certain cancers or long term steroid use.
  10. 10. Recovery • As you prepare yourself mentally to undergo spinal surgery, you also need to prepare yourself for the recovery period that will follow your operation. While the surgery entails work on the part of the surgeon, after that, the brunt of the work is in your hands. To ensure a smooth and healthy recovery, it is important that, as a patient, you closely follow the set of instructions that your surgical team gives you.
