Neurosurgery procedures performed by NSPG spine specialists.

NSPG specialists offer a broad range of neurosurgery procedures. Our minimally invasive surgical treatments include:

  • Microsurgical decompression, where a spine specialist removes a portion of the laminar roof over the spinal canal to relieve pinched or compressed nerves affected by lumbar spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis or herniated disks.
  • Microdiscectomy, where a spine surgeon removes disk material from under the nerve root or a bit of the bone over the nerve root to alleviate neural impingement and give the nerve room to heal.
  • X-stop for spinal stenosis, a neurosurgery procedure that involves the insertion of a device into the back of the spine to alleviate the painful symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis.

Neurosurgery specialists also perform complex procedures for advanced degenerative conditions, tumors and fractures, and spondylolisthesis.

Advanced procedures:

  • Kyphoplasty for osteoporotic compression fractures
  • Computer guided surgical procedures
  • Artificial disc replacement procedures

  • Inflammatory conditions and infections (e.g., myelopathy and radiculopathy)
