Procedures

Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)

This is a procedure that treats lumbar spinal stenosis with instability. The procedure involves decompressing the trapped nerve root/spinal cord and stabilizing the spine by permanently uniting the unstable bones with bone graft, screws, and rods. Dr. Camillo prefers to do this procedure minimally invasive, using a small incision to minimize damage to the surrounding tissue and to allow quicker healing.

Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to address acute-on-chronic compression fractures. It involves a small incision of less than 2 mm and implantation of cement into the fractured vertebral body. This procedure can be done in the office.

Lumbar Laminectomy

A Lumbar Laminectomy addresses spinal stenosis when there is no instability. It involves decompressing the entrapped nerve roots and/or spinal cord by removing bone that is compressing the nerve root/spinal cord.

Lumbar Microdiskectomy

Lumbar microdiscectomy is a procedure that addresses when there is a disc herniation placing pressure on the nerve root. The procedure involves removing the disc fragment that is irritating the nerve root. This procedure can be done minimally invasive through an incision less than a centimeter. Dr. Camillo does all of his microdiscectomies through minimally invasive. Therefore, minimizing damage to the surrounding tissue and allowing for quicker healing.

Anterior Cervical Diskectomy

This procedure is used to treat pressure on the nerve roots/and/or spinal cord in the neck or cervical region. It involves an anterior approach from the front of the neck to address the pathology causing the pressure on the nerve roots. The procedure is commonly done with a fusion or a disc replacement.

Anterior Cervical Diskectomy and Fusion (ACDF)

This a procedure that involves cervical discectomy coming in from the front to remove the pressure on the nerve roots and/or spinal cord and then a fusion to stabilize the bones. The fusion is obtained using bone graft as well as hardware in the form of a plate and screws. It is a well-tolerated procedure with a very high satisfaction rate.

Cervical Total Disc Replacement

A Cervical Total Disc Replacement​ is performed after cervical discectomy as an alternative to having a cervical fusion. The artificial disc that is implanted allows for preservation of motion and prevents adjacent segment disease. It is a great procedure in the correct candidate.

Posterior Cervical Decompression & Fusion

This is a procedure where the pressure on the spinal cord is addressed from an approach from the patient’s back of the neck region.  Procedure is used to treat underlying conditions, such as disc herniations as well as cervical spinal stenosis.

Laminaplasty

Laminoplasty is an orthopaedic/neurosurgical surgical procedure for treating spinal stenosis by relieving pressure on the spinal cord. The main purpose of this procedure is to provide relief to patients who may suffer from symptoms of numbness, pain, or weakness in arm movement.

Epidural Steroid Injection (ESI)

ESI is a cortisone injection used to treat inflammation in the space that surrounds the spinal cord and the nerves coming out of it. This procedure can help relieve neck, arm, back, and leg pain with inflammation. It may relieve pain caused by spinal stenosis, spondylolysis, or disc herniation.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency ablation is a therapy that uses radio waves to create an electrical current through the body. This current delivers heat to targeted nerve tissues. And this can help reduce your chronic pain symptoms that are associated with various conditions. This is because the heat is applied to the nerve tissue in a way that impairs or destroys the nerves.

Sacroiliac Injection

A therapeutic SI joint injection is done to provide relief of the pain associated with
sacroiliac joint dysfunction. the pain caused by this syndrome may be felt in your
lower back, buttocks, groin, and your thigh.

iFuse Sacroiliac Procedure

A minimally invasive surgical treatment for sacroiliac joint disorders. Occasionally, hip problems can be confused with low back conditions. The SI joint can be a significant contributor to pain in the lower back, pelvic region, buttocks, or legs.

The iFuse Implant System is a new, minimally invasive approach for sacroiliac (SI) joint fusion surgery to treat conditions including sacroiliac joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis. The procedure utilizes a smaller incision and a guide pin to provide stability to the SI joint, which results in less pain and a quicker recovery time.

Discogram

A discogram, also spelled diskogram, is a test used to evaluate back pain. Discography uses imaging guidance to direct an injection of contrast material into the center of one or more spinal discs to help identify the source of back pain. It also is used to help guide the treatment of abnormal intervertebral discs – sponge-like cushions located between the vertebrae of the spine.
