MIS thoracic decompression or fusion

Compression of the spinal cord and/or nerves in the thoracic spine is less common than it is in the neck or low back, but it can happen. 

If there is a disc herniation or arthritis in the thoracic spine causing compression of the spinal cord/nerves, Dr. Steinhaus may recommend minimally invasive decompression or fusion. In this procedure, Dr. Steinhaus uses a small incision and a microscope to remove the diseased tissue and relieve the compression on the spinal cord and/or nerves. If sufficient bone needs to be removed to relieve this pressure, Dr. Steinhaus may recommend a fusion to stabilize the spine
