    Spinal Fusion

    Spinal fusions are surgical procedures used to correct painful spinal conditions of various kinds – the deformities of scoliosis, spinal instability such as may arise from arthritis, and so on. Essentially, spinal fusion is surgical treatment that permanently and rigidly fuses two or more vertebrae in the spine together with bone grafts, screws, plates or other means, so that the vertebrae in question no longer move with respect to one another. Once surgery successfully completes and heals, you no longer feel the pain that you used to experience when the vertebrae could move.

    About Spinal Fusion

    The typical candidate for such surgery struggles with at least one of these symptoms:

    • Persistent, long-term pain in the back, that throbs, radiates, or shoots.
    • Weakness or numbness felt in the feet.
    • Radiating sciatica — pain that originates around the lower back, and radiates down the legs.
    • Pain while sitting, standing, or walking.


    Your surgeon will usually only recommend spinal or lumbar fusion surgery when other conservative pain relief services — medications and physical therapy, for example — have been tried and found unsuccessful in helping with a painful spinal condition. Such surgical treatment is also only considered a good idea when the surgeon is able to narrow down the source of the pain experienced to a specific cause — such as spinal stenosis, or a herniated disc.

    Your surgeon may recommend that you wear a back brace following surgery, if multiple vertebrae need to be fused in the procedure, if you’re elderly, if you suffer from bone degeneration, diabetes or obesity. This will reduce your healing time.

    In some cases, an entire vertebra can be removed and then the spine will be fused with a process known as an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF).

    Spinal fusions rigidly connect one or more vertebral segments together. Fusion of this kind can place increased stresses and workloads on other spinal segments adjacent. Those vertebrae may experience increased wear and tear, which may lead to complications in the future. However, following doctor’s advice and observing the right kind of body mechanics when you’re active, can help ensure that these problems do not occur.

    My mom had her wrist broken and was in so much pain, I was very worried. So I took her to the doctor at Neo Medical Group at once. He examined her hand, and told us that the best solution for an injury now is Joint Reconstruction. The price of this treatment is surprisingly low, and they took good care of my mom there. She feels great and is thankful to your professional doctors.

    Wonderful doctor Curtis L. Beauregard. Clearly explains what he can do to improve function and what cannot be done. Easy manner, listens well.

    Dr. Tyrance took amazing care of my knee, which was my second operation on this knee. We spoke about treatment plan, my goals and what it would take to get there. I would not be enjoying the quality of life I enjoy today, if not for this caring and skillful surgeon! Thank you Dr. Tyrance!

    I was treated like a human and not just shuffled thru like most other places. I appreciate the staff greatly. My respects to Dr. Beauregard.

    Dr. Patrick Tyrance is awesome! He is caring, patient and honest! He has impacted my life in many ways since I’ve met him. I went in for a PRP injection and the procedure has changed my life. His staff was very welcoming, respectful, and made me feel comfortable. I am truly grateful for Dr. Tyrance along with his staff!

    For the last 5 years I had been suffering from acute pain in the elbow. My grandson decided to take me to the trusted doctor to check if it is an injury or what exactly. In Neo Medical Group, they told me that due to my age I have a severe condition which needs to be treated with Arthroscopic Debridgement of the Elbow. And this treatment really helped, I never felt better.

    Great Facility!! Amazing staff!! Won’t be disappointed
