Spine Surgical Treatments  

The Covenant Spine Centers provide the latest technology for surgery to relieve pain and correct problems with the back, neck and spine.  While many surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis, some procedures and some patients greatly benefit from the specialized care of the Spine Center.

These include patients undergoing complex surgeries, such as multi-level spinal fusion to treat severe pain associated with deformity and degenerative disk disease at two or more levels of the spine.   The healing environment of the Spine Center also benefits older adults undergoing less complex procedures, such as a discectomy, who may require additional time to heal.  Other procedures include:

  • Laminectomies to relieve pressure on the spinal cord
  • Decompressive laminectomies for stenosis
  • Laminectomies and discectomies for herniated discs
  • Spinal fusion for spondylolisthesis (unstable spine)
  • Surgical reconstruction of spinal deformities
