Atlantic Spine Center Terms of Service
Bone spurs (osteophytes) refer to bony overgrowths. Bone spurs commonly occur in the back of the spine, and they are prominent in older people. Bone spurs can compress surrounding nerve structures and cause pain and nerve related symptoms. Facet joint bone spurs causes neck and low back pain when facet joints move. Disc bulging generally indicates an increase of the spinal load and weakness of a spinal disc. Disc degeneration refers to the changes of the spinal discs resulted from chronic wear and tear, or injury. These changes include loss of water in the central disc (disc desiccation), disruption of the disc annulus, and new growth of pain nerve fibers into the damaged discs. Disc herniation means moving central disc material (nucleus) through broken disc annulus. Depending on the location, a herniated disc may be contained (within the disc), extruded (outside of the disc), or sequestered (disc fragment falling out of the disc).

Atlantic Spine Center FAQ
Endoscopic spine surgery is a minimally invasive spine procedure. The incision is less than 10 mm and the muscle is split with dull dilators. During the surgery, surgeons place small tubes onto the diseased area in the spine using modern percutaneous techniques; they utilize needles, guidance wires and dilators under precision x-ray guidance (fluoroscopy). The tubes range from 4 mm to 8 mm in diameter. The smaller ones are used in the cervical and thoracic spine and the larger ones are used in the lumbar spine. The tubes function as tunnels for the endoscope, a tool that provides channels for light, irrigation and micro instruments such as lasers and graspers. Endoscopic spine surgery is as effective as open spinal surgery for many spinal diseases but the advantages of endoscopic spine surgery are tremendous.
