What Is a Spinal Deformity? Spinal deformity is a prevalent condition among elderly adults in the U.S. As many as 68 percent of people older than 70 and 32 percent of those over the age of 50 have a type of spinal deformity known as degenerative spondylolisthesis.

What Is a Hemilaminectomy? Hemilaminectomy is a surgical technique for relieving extremely painful spine problems. When your vertebrae pinches or restricts your spinal cord or nerve roots, a hemilaminectomy may be the answer. But since not all spine surgeons perform this procedure, turn to neurosurgeon Dr. Branko Skovrlj at NU-Spine, The Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Institute in Edison, NJ when you require a hemilaminectomy. Your spine acts as the foundation of your central nervous system, as well as the main structure of your skeletal system. When pain flares upon any part of your spine, it can quickly become chronic and debilitating. A hemilaminectomy literally means half a laminectomy, and it involves removing half as much bone from your spine.

What Is a Thoracic Disc Herniation? Your spine is composed of a column of vertebral bones, and in between each bone is a soft, pliable disc. These discs keep your vertebrae from rubbing against each other, providing flexibility and fluidity to your spine. Discs are also the shock absorbers of the spine. But when a disc in the middle of your back is damaged and the inner gel leaks out, the result is a thoracic disc herniation that can cause back pain and stiffness. At NU-Spine, spine center in Edison, New Jersey, Dr. Branko Skovrlj, carries out extensive diagnostic testing for spinal problems to determine the source of your pain.
