Neurosurgically your Neck Pain
is caused by various diseases such as Sprain, Disc Bulging/Herniation, Cervical Stenosis, Foraminal Stenosis, OPLL, Tumor, etc.
Stage 18 Stages of Tailored Spine Treatmentsat Wooridul Spine Hospital
To treat patients quickly, safely and accurately
Nerve Block and Muscle Stimulation Therapy
When pain occurs due to a disease in the lumbar or cervical spine, the muscles around the lesion become stiff and it can lead to partial disturbance of blood flow and worsening of pain.
In this case, the stiff muscles need to be released with stimulation, and the ligaments, joints, and nerves need to be treated at the same time so that the pain will be alleviated faster.
Using imaging devices such as ultrasound, C-arm, or CT, the location of the nerve is checked and approached safely. The pain may arise during treatment, so local anesthesia and anti-inflammatory drugs are administered as well as stimulation of the ligaments, muscles and facet joints near the lesion. It is to relieve pain and restore function.
Safe injection therapy using high-resolution CT equipment that clearly shows the cross-section of the vertebrae and information on nerves and blood vessels.
The treatment method introduced for the first time in Korea by the doctor of Wooridul Spine Hospital
CT-image Guided Spine Micro-Therapy
It is a non-surgical pain treatment that does not require an incision to the spinal nerves, discs, ligaments or joints surrounding the nerves.
Through simulation of the area to be treated, we find the best way to reach and perform the treatment precisely. Then, we can safely, quickly and accurately reach the target point for diagnosis and treat the patient.
Various Types of Imaging-Guided Spine Microtherapy
- CT-Guided-Root Block
- CT-Guided Facet Rhizotomy
- Percutaneous Vertebroplasty, Kyphoplasty
- CT-Guided Aspiration & Biopsy
- CT-Guided Cyst Removal
- CT-Guided Percutaneous Endoscopic Laser Annuloplasty
- CT-Guided Discogram
Neuroplasty / Neurolysis
It is a therapy to treat compressed nerve and adhesion by safely inserting a special tube (moveable catheter) with a diameter of 1 to 2mm using an imaging device (C-arm, CT-guided).
While moving the catheter, secure space to detach, wash, and release the adhesion.
After local anesthesia, the needle is inserted into the disc using an imaging device.
By applying high-frequency thermal energy, the lesion causing pain inside the nucleus pulposus with abnormalities is removed to block the induction and transmission of pain and relieve nerve compression.
Principles of Nucleoplasty
This treatment is to remove the pain nerve and re-tightening the annulus fibrosus by sending the heat generated by the thermal energy generator through the heat conduction wire and then maintaining the appropriate temperature.
