In cases where non-surgical treatments have not resolved the symptoms radiculopathy, our Board-Certified Orthopedic Spine Team Surgeons may discuss the option of a surgical procedure. Unlike in years past, most spinal procedures can now be performed using a minimally invasive approach that requires only a small incision and significantly expedites recovery time.
While there are several Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery options for radiculopathy, the goal for any of these procedures is to remove the herniated portion of the disc(s), spinal bones or other structures to alleviate pressure on the spinal nerves.
Our Board-Certified and Fellowship-Trained Orthopedic Spine Surgeons are among the most experienced in Alaska and are experts in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgical procedures.
At OPA, our Board-Certified and Fellowship-Trained Spine Specialists, Dr. Mark Flanum, Dr. James Eule, and Dr. Curtis Mina are experts in treating radiculopathy.
