The Carolina Medical Center has a modern Spine Disease Treatment Center, which combines the knowledge and experience of specialists – orthopedists and neurosurgeons, as well as physiotherapists specializing in the treatment of diseases and injuries of the spine. We provide our patients with comprehensive treatment: medical consultations, diagnostic imaging, operations, as well as spine rehabilitation. We perform a full range of standard treatments and the most modern minimally invasive procedures.
Minimal tissue interference and quick recovery after surgery make the constant development of minimally invasive surgery our priority. We also use these methods in cases where the patient cannot undergo classic (open) or microsurgical surgery..
Examples of minimally invasive treatment of spine diseases
Endoscopic surgery allows to operate the spine without cutting the muscles, paraspinal ligaments and bones, and the patient is exposed to less blood loss and less pain than in the case of classic treatment.
Treatments with the use of an endoscope are performed in our clinic in Warsaw. In most cases, patients leave the hospital one day after the operation.
Discopathy treated with one injection
The procedure, used in the treatment of disc hernias, consists in the percutaneous injection of the DISCOGEL® implant into the nucleus pulposus of the disc. It is anti-inflammatory by filling the cracks in the weakened fibrous ring while blocking pain receptors.
Percutaneous stabilization of the spine
The advanced transcutaneous Spine Jack® stabilization system is used in traumatic compression fractures and osteoporotic spine fractures. A 30-minute procedure involves the percutaneous insertion of two needles, thanks to which the Kirschner wire is inserted into the corpus vertebrae. Two implants are inserted inside, recreating the height of the broken corpus vertebrae. The inside of the corpus vertebrae is filled with cement, stiffening the entire structure.
Stabilization of the spine in the lumbar region using the ALIF technique
The ALIF method is based on retroperitoneal (through the abdominal cavity) access to the spine. ALIF does not leave a scar in the spinal canal, does not affect the paraspinal muscles, and provides easy access to the spinal canal.
