Few structures in the human body are as powerful and flexible as the spine. However, it bears the stress of supporting and protecting the network of tissue and nerves that connect the torso, limbs and brain. Whether damage to the spine occurs due to injury, overuse, trauma or arthritis, it can cause debilitating pain. In addition to treating common spinal injuries and conditions, renowned spine specialists at The Methodist Center for Orthopaedic Surgery also perform complex spinal reconstruction and specialized microsurgeries to help heal patients as effectively as possible.
Conditions the center commonly treats for the cervical (neck), thoracic (mid back) and lumbar (lower back) spine include:
- Disc degeneration
- Disc herniations
- Spinal canal stenosis
