Did you know there are 23 discs in your spine? These discs aid in the everyday functioning of your spine. They provide cushion between your vertebrae and give the spine its flexibility. They also help to preserve and protect your vital nerve column.
The human spine plays a vital role in stability, smooth movement, and protection of the delicate spinal cord. The Spine Clinic of Oklahoma City is a state of the art spinal medicine practice founded by Dr. Brett Braly. Dr. Braly works to offer new, cutting edge techniques in spinal medicine through minimally invasive procedures to save patients from the trauma of surgery.
For patients who have already undergone spinal surgery, it can be difficult to hear that they need another surgery. However, even with the best surgeons and care, it may be necessary to perform a revision spine surgery to correct complications from one surgery or to tackle new spine problems unrelated to the previous procedure.
When a patient hears they may need spine surgery, they often have many questions about the risks. Doctors at the Spine Clinic in Oklahoma City are making strides in minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) which stands out for their reduced risk when compared with traditional approaches.
