Spinal Conditions Treated at Our Center
At ProMed SPINE, we're dedicated to helping you improve and maintain your spinal health. We provide patient-centric care for the following spine conditions, including but not limited to:
Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disease refers to a condition characterized by age-related degeneration of the spinal discs. As one of the most common causes of back pain, degenerative disc disease can be treated by the expert spinal surgeons at ProMed SPINE. Learn more about degenerative disc disease.
Occurring when a rupture in the disk allows the soft cartilage inside to protrude, a herniated or bulging disk can cause pain, numbness or weakness in the limbs. Herniated disks may result from lifting heavy objects or twisting suddenly. While some herniated disks will heal with medication, rest and physical therapy, patients with more severe cases may need surgery to correct the problem and alleviate pain. Learn more about herniated discs.
Some individuals experience a constricting of the spaces within the spine, a condition that puts stress on the spinal cord and nerves. Left untreated, spinal stenosis can lead to pain, numbness, problems with muscle function and even bladder and bowel control issues. Some patients require surgery to widen the space available for the spinal cord and nerves and alleviate symptoms. Learn more about spinal stenosis.
A broad term for abnormal curvatures of the spine, spinal deformity can refer to conditions like scoliosis, which typically affect children and teens, and adult issues like age-related kyphosis for osteoporosis. Without treatment, spinal deformity can affect a patient’s ability to function and enjoy life. Fortunately, our doctors specialize in spinal deformity correction using the most state-of-the-art treatments and procedures. Learn more about spinal deformity.
Radicular Pain/ Sciatica
A term for pain along the sciatic nerve (lower back through the hips and legs), sciatica often results from herniated disks or bone spurs and can lead to numbness and painful inflammation. For severe cases or radicular pain, our experienced doctors perform surgery to relieve the pressure on the nerve and ease patient discomfort. Learn more about radicular pain and sciatica.
Dr. Gravori and his team offer patient-centric treatment for individuals with spine trauma, or damage to the spinal cord or nerves. Seeking treatment from an expert spine surgeon is crucial to maximizing function after spine trauma. Learn more about spine trauma.
Cancerous or benign growths on or near the spinal cord, spine tumors can cause back pain, neurological problems and even paralysis. For many individuals, surgery is the best way to prevent nerve damage and protect the patient’s long-term health. Learn more about spine tumors.
In some patients, a small or misshapen skull can put pressure on the brain and force brain tissue to protrude into the spinal canal. While uncommon, Chiari malformation is a serious condition that can result in pain or damage to the central nervous system. Seeking treatment from a board-certified neurosurgeon like those at ProMed SPINE is the best way to reduce discomfort associated with this problem. Learn more about Chiari Malformation.
