Surgical Services

While most cases of back pain can be successfully treated with non-surgical options, some conditions may require surgery. Some of the diagnoses that may need surgery include:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Myelopathy and Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Vertebral Fractures
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spinal Cord Compression
  • Sciatica

Board-certified spine surgeons at the Hilton Head Hospital Spine Center work with a specialized team of physicians to determine the best surgical treatment options for the patient. Surgical options may include:

  • Robotic-assisted spine surgery using Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ (Hyperlink this bullet point to click to the Globus page below with more information)
  • Laminectomy/Discectomy: a procedure in which part of the lamina is removed, as well as a portion of a ligament. The herniated disc is then removed.
  • Microdiscectomy: similar to a discectomy, but using a smaller injection.
  • Lumbar Spinal Fusion: when two or more vertebra are joined together using bone grafts, screws and rods.
  • Treatment of Spine Trauma
  • Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury
  • Hardware Revision
