Private Spinal Decompression
If you have compressed nerves in your lumbar spine, a private spinal decompression surgery might be beneficial to you. Spinal decompression is done to treat spinal stenosis, a slipped disc and sciatica, spinal injuries and metastatic spinal cord decompression.
If lumbar decompression surgery is recommended, you might have one of these procedures: laminectomy, discectomy, foraminotomy, osteophyte or spinal fusion. In many cases, a combination of these procedures might be used. Knowing which procedure is right for you is determined by your neurosurgeon. Most of the time they prefer a stepped approach starting with less invasive procedures before jumping into surgery.
If you are interested in a consultation, we can make arrangements for that. The cost is $600 for the records and MRI images to be reviewed by a neurosurgeon and include a discussion with him on whether or not a private spinal decompression is the appropriate procedure for your needs. Keep in mind, a recent MRI less than 6 months old is preferred. We charge a $200 fee to make these arrangements. Contact us today to set your consultation up!
