Procedure Details

Spinal arthritis is one of the most common causes of chronic back and neck pain. Symptoms can be relatively benign at the onset of the disease. Over time, inflammation can increase and symptoms that were previously manageable can become completely debilitating

360 Ortho and Spine makes every effort to put the patient at the center of every decision made. This principle applies not only to the surgeons but every team member that patients interact with. Our comprehensive approach to patient care is what allows our team to achieve industry best results. If you have any questions about 360 Ortho and Spine’s procedures, please do not hesitate to contact a patient consultant today to find out if you might be a candidate for treatment.

Arthritis of the spine can be a complex condition. First, arthritis of the spine can be synonymous with many other diagnosis. It can also be known as facet disease, facet hypertrophy, facet syndrome, facet arthopathy. Unfortunately, many practitioners can be dismissive about symptoms that are associated with spinal arthritis. Patients are told “it’s just arthritis and there isn’t really much that can be done to treat it”. While it is true that the condition itself is fairly common and in many cases patients will experience minimal symptoms, there are certainly cases where spinal arthritis can cause crippling pain. Spinal arthritis is typically a degenerative condition where the facet joints that allow the dynamic movement of our vertebral column have started to deteriorate and become inflamed. Within these joints exists sensory nerves that send signals to our brains that allow us to feel pain.

How can a Destruction via Thermal Ablation help?

Destruction via Thermal Ablation is a procedure where the sensory nerves that send pain signals to our brain are ablated (destroyed) to provide relief for arthritis related symptoms. Typically, the surgeon will make a small incision and use laparoscopic guidance to navigate to the inflamed facet joint and then use heat generated from the laser to deaden the sensory nerves for that particular facet joint. This procedure causes minimal disruption to the surrounding muscles and tissues and allows patients to recover much faster than conventional open surgeries.
