Our focus is the treatment of pain in the spine right after the consultation.
MINIMUM INVASIVE PERCUTANEOUS SURGERY
Our goal is to avoid open spine surgery with screw and arthrodesis
Three advantages of minimally invasive spinal blocks and surgeries:
1 - Ambulatory procedures with local anesthesia
2 - Improvement with immediate pain relief and discharge on the same day
3 - High success rate: avoids open surgery in more than 90% of pain cases
Do not operate the column, we have minimally invasive solutions.
Three reasons for not operating the column:
1 - Loss of movement of the fixed segment
2 - Loss of part of the normal bone of the operated site formation of
scar with formation of epidural fibrosis
3 - High risk of complications and result failure
