We provide complete care for the aging and adult spine. Dr. Brett Braly is an orthopedic spine surgeon who found his passion for treating the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions of the spine through his own experience as a spinal fusion patient. At The Spine Clinic we are proud to offer the latest and best in orthopedic spinal surgery to our patients. Dr. Braly is the only Oklahoma surgeon admitted to the Society of Lateral Access Surgery; he is a fierce advocate for the advancement of minimally invasive spine surgery and brings his extensive training and experience with these techniques to every case.
We provide a wide range of services and approaches to spinal surgery. These services include:
Spinal Cord & Nerve Decompression
Spinal cord and nerve decompression surgeries relieve symptoms caused by pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots. This pressure can come from a variety of sources such as arthritis, enlarged joints, bone spurs, bulging discs or thickened ligaments. This pressure can be the root cause of symptoms such as chronic pain, numbness and tingling, weakness, unsteadiness, and in some rare cases even neurological deficits.
Spinal Fusion Surgery
Spinal fusion surgery is a procedure whereby two or more vertebrae are permanently connected to form what is, essentially, a single bone. Spinal fusion surgery is often used as an intervention to correct symptoms relating to scoliosis, spinal stenosis, herniated disks, and a wide range of other spinal problems. Dr. Braly, a spinal fusion patient himself, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to every spinal fusion procedure he performs.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery [MISS]
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, or MISS, is the latest development in the field of spine surgery. MISS is performed through small incisions to reduce surgical damage to the surrounding tissues and improve outcomes. Dr. Braly is the only surgeon in Oklahoma admitted to the Society of Lateral Access Surgery and is proud to be an advocate for minimally invasive spine surgery.
Revision Spine Surgery
Revision spine surgery serves to correct symptoms that linger after a previous spine surgery. While a second surgery is never ideal, sometimes it may be necessary. Revision spine surgery is often used to relieve symptoms caused by scar tissue around previous surgical incisions, chronic pain continuing after an unsuccessful surgery, as well as a variety of other reasons. Dr. Braly and his staff know that the best outcomes come from listening to patients and walk with you through the process step by step.
