The Spine Clinic of Oklahoma City is a leader in total spine care, science and education and patient care. We offer comprehensive spine care for patients across Oklahoma, providing individualized one-on-one patient care to help alleviate your back and neck pain. We strive to treat our patients conservatively with non-surgical treatment options. Our surgical team specialized in minimally invasive neck and back surgery for optimal patient outcomes.
If you are suffering from back pain, or other spinal disorders, we have multiple treatment options available. We are dedicated to improving your quality of life and getting you back to normal activities as quickly as possible.
In most cases, back pain can be resolved without surgery. The conservative treatment involves the use of pain medications and other methods to reduce inflammation and restore normal function. Usually, some self-care methods and medications can help to overcome back pain, but if pain and inflammation persist over 72 hours, it is necessary to consult your physician.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, or MISS, represents the latest developments in the world of spine surgery. Because of its minimally invasive nature, MISS allows for speedier recovery times, less risk of infection, less blood loss in surgery, less postoperative pain, a quicker recovery, and fewer days in the hospital. Dr. Brett Braly is an advocate for the benefits of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery.
Spinal cord and nerve decompression surgery is designed to relieve pressure on the spinal cords and nerve roots. This pressure, or stenosis, on the nerves can be the cause of a variety of symptoms such as chronic pain, numbness and tingling, weakness, unsteadiness, and in some rare cases even neurological deficits. When that pressure is relieved, patients can experience relief from those symptoms.
With revision spine surgery, we correct symptoms that linger after a previous surgery. A second surgery is never ideal and no patient wants to hear they need a revision; however, in some cases a revision is necessary to correct issues not addressed by or even created by a previous surgery.
Spinal fusion surgery, also called arthrodesis, is used to stabilize the spine. During a spinal fusion surgery, two or more vertebrae are permanently connected to each other, joining them into a single bone. Spinal fusion surgery is often performed to alleviate the symptoms of a variety of different spinal issues.
