Conditions We Treat

Bone Cyst

Bone cyst is a general term referring to a fluid containing lesion in bone.


Brain Hemorrhage

A hemorrhage refers to bleeding due to the escape of blood from a blood vessel. Brain hemorrhage refers to bleeding in the skull. It can occur as bleeding:

  • Inside the brain
  • Between the brain and the membranes that cover it
  • Between the layers of the brain's covering
  • Between the skull and the covering of the brain

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common problem affecting the hand and wrist. Symptoms begin when the median nerve gets squeezed inside the carpal tunnel of the wrist, a medical condition known as nerve entrapment.


Chiari Malformation

Chiari Malformation is a condition in which the cerebellum portion of the brain protrudes into the spinal canal.


Degenerative Disc Disease

Gradual or rapid deterioration of the chemical composition and physical properties of the disc space.


Failed Back Syndrome

Failed Back Syndrome is a very generalized term that is often used to describe the condition of patients who have not had a successful result with back surgery or spine surgery.


Herniated Discs

The term “herniation” means that the material at the center of the disc has squeezed out of its normal space. A herniated lumbar disc can press on the nerves in the spine and may cause pain, numbness, tingling or weakness of the leg called "sciatica".


Kyphosis

Kyphosis refers to an abnormal increase in the normal kyphotic curvature of the thoracic spine. Round shoulder deformity, humpback, dorsal kyphotic curvature; may refer to any forward-bending area or deformity of the spine.


Meningioma

A firm, often vascular, tumor arising from the coverings of the brain. Meningiomas do not generally recur if totally removed.


Metastatic Brain Tumors

Metastatic brain tumors result from cancer that started elsewhere in the body and spread (metastasized) to the brain. Most metastatic brain tumors are from cancers of the lung or breast, but almost any tumor can spread to the brain. These malignant (cancerous) brain tumors can grow rapidly, crowding or destroying nearby brain tissue.


Primary Brain Tumors

Primary brain tumors are tumors that originate from the tissues of the brain. Primary brain tumors may be benign or malignant.


Scoliosis

Lateral (sideways) curvature of the spine.


Skull Base Tumor

Skull base tumors are a group of tumors that have a tendency to grow along various regions of the bottom part of the skull, mostly on the inside but occasionally on the outside of the skull as well.


Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury refers to damage to the spinal cord usually caused by the displacement of bone fragments, disc material, or ligaments bruising or tearing into the spinal cord tissue. A spinal cord injury usually begins with a sudden, traumatic blow to the spine that fractures or dislocates vertebrae.


Spinal Cord Tumors

Tumors involving the spinal cord. The spinal cord is the longitudinal cord of nerve tissue that is enclosed in the spinal canal. It serves not only as a pathway for nervous impulses to and from the brain, but as a center for carrying out and coordinating many reflex actions independently of the brain.


Spinal Deformity

Spinal deformity means abnormality in the curves of the spine.


Spinal Stenosis

Stenosis means closing in. Spinal stenosis describes a condition in which the nerves in the spinal canal are closed in, or compressed. The spinal canal is the hollow tube formed by the bones of the spinal column. Anything that causes this bony tube to shrink can squeeze the nerves inside. As a result of many years of wear and tear on the parts of the spine, the tissues nearest the spinal canal sometimes press against the nerves.


Spondylolisthesis

Normally, the bones of the spine stand neatly stacked on top of one another. Ligaments and joints support the spine. Spondylolisthesis alters the alignment of the spine. In this condition, one of the spine bones slips forward over the one below it. As the bone slips forward, the nearby tissues and nerves may become irritated and painful.


Spondylosis

Ankylosis of the vertebra; often applied nonspecifically to any lesion of the spine of a degenerative nature. Bony replacement of ligaments around the disc spaces of the spine, associated with decreased mobility and eventual fusion.


Syringomyelia

Syringomyelia is a fluid filled cavity in the spinal cord. Usually involving upper segments initially and involving the shoulder muscles.


Ulnar Neuropathy

Ulnar neuropathy refers to an injury of the ulnar nerve. The ulnar nerve is the nerve that passes through the forearm and into the hand, and provides sensation to the fourth and fifth digits of the hand, the palm, and the back side of the forearm. Ulnar neuropathy most frequently occurs at the point where the ulnar nerve passes through the elbow.


Vertebral Fractures

A vertebral fracture is a break in one of the bones of the spine. These bones are called the vertebrae.


Vertebral Tumors

Vertebral tumors are tumors in the vertebral body. The vertebral body is the main rectangular portion of the spine.
