Educational Information

Dr. Spence believes in educating patients on their diagnosis and procedure. If you have any questions, please let us know! 

Percutaneous

A Percutaneous procedure is any
kind of medical procedure where
access to internal organs or other tissue
is done via a needle puncture to
the skin. This allows for ease of
introducing devices into the patient.
Rather than using an incision, a percutaneous procedure can mean a shorter hospital stay for the patient.

Minimally Invasive
Minimally Invasive refers to any kind
of surgical procedure that is done
through tiny incisions instead of a large opening. An endoscope is normally
used to assist surgeons see the patients internal organs. Because of this
patients generally have quicker
recovery times and less pain than
traditional surgery options.
Revision Surgery
Revision surgeries are performed
in certain patients to correct problems
caused by earlier spinal surgeries.
This can be caused by broken hardware,
scar tissue developing around the incision
site or spinal stenosis. If a patient
experiences any of these a revision surgery may need to be performed or the patient
may continue to experience chronic pain.
