Tampa Bay Orthopaedic and Spine offers a comprehensive approach to patients who require surgery for their spinal issues.

Neck & Back Surgeries
Below is a list of the various surgeries available through our doctors.
Posterior and Anterior Disc Decompression
Facet Capsuloplasty Surgery
This surgery is performed for patients with known damage to the joints of the lumbar spine ( low back ). Often trauma can injure the joint coverings known as joint capsules. Tears in these joint capsules can result in significant pain. This surgery uses laser to assist in repair of these joint capsules and additionally to ablate the tiny nerves entering the joint. So once the pain from the performed surgery resolves, the patient has the opportunity for both immediate and long term relief of their joint pain. Recovery is usually around 3 weeks.
