Complex Spinal Reconstruction
We recommend complex spinal reconstruction when more than two vertebrae are causing problems that are not otherwise treatable.
These cases can pose particular challenges. That’s why it’s important to trust your care to a team with expertise and experience performing this advanced procedure anywhere in the spine that it is needed.
Complex Spinal Reconstruction Systems: Advanced Tools
For complex spinal reconstruction, we use the safest and most advanced implants possible, including:
- Cages: Devices that fill the space when discs between vertebrae are removed
Complex Spinal Reconstruction Systems: Am I a Candidate?
Complex spinal reconstruction is used to treat spinal deformities, such as scoliosis. It may also be considered for more severe cases of:
Our surgeons may also recommend it for some patients after surgical removal of spine cancer.
Complex Spinal Reconstruction: What to Expect
Spinal reconstruction surgery uses screws, wires and rods to stabilize the spine, either to treat a fracture or correct a deformity, as in scoliosis, where the back curves in an ‘S’ or ‘C’ shape.
Complex spinal reconstruction can involve several types of surgeries performed by our expert surgeons, including decompression surgery and spinal fusion. These techniques help shape and stabilize the spine. Because of its intricacy, complex spinal reconstruction often requires a longer recovery time than for other spinal surgeries.
Whenever possible, our surgeons use techniques for minimally invasive spine surgery.
