Foraminotomy Spine Surgery In Golden Valley, MN
A foraminotomy gets its name from the area that is operated on during the procedure. Each one of your vertebral bones has a hole through which nerves and arteries pass through. This area is called the foramen, and if those nerves become compressed or pinched, it can lead to pain and discomfort. If problems in one or more of your spinal foramen develop, and non-operative techniques fail to rectify the issue, a foraminotomy may help. During the minimally invasive procedure, a small incision is made in the back through which tools and a camera are inserted. Once the tools are in place and the surgeon can visualize the foramen, the surgeon will work to free the compressed nerve or remove the problemed bone. Once addressed, the tools will be removed and the small incision will be closed with sutures. The procedure has very high success rates, and Dr, Sinicropi can complete the operation in less than an hour. If you want to talk to someone at his clinic about your options, reach out to him below.
