What procedures do we perform?

Dr. Tomac and his team is committed to providing comprehensive care to help you find relief from various forms of discomfort. Our clinic specializes in addressing a wide range of conditions and employs advanced procedures to enhance your well-being. Here are some of the procedures we offer:

Anterior Cervical Discectomy Fusion (ACDF) is a surgical procedure performed to address issues in the cervical spine (neck region) related to herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, or other conditions causing nerve compression and pain.

Artificial Cervical Disc Replacement (ACDR) is a surgical procedure designed to address cervical spine conditions, particularly degenerative disc disease, by replacing a damaged or degenerated cervical disc with an artificial disc. This procedure aims to maintain motion at the affected level of the spine while relieving symptoms.

Computer Navigated & Robotic Assisted Surgeries are advanced technologies used in the field of surgery to enhance precision, accuracy, and, in some cases, enable minimally invasive procedures.

Degenerative/Deformity Corrective Surgeries are types of orthopedic procedures aimed at addressing conditions related to the degeneration of joints or the presence of spinal deformities. These surgeries are often performed to alleviate pain, improve function, and correct abnormalities in the musculoskeletal system.

Epidural Steroid Injections are medical procedures commonly used to alleviate pain and inflammation in the spine. These injections deliver a combination of corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic directly into the epidural space, which surrounds the spinal cord and nerve roots. ESIs are often recommended for individuals experiencing pain related to nerve compression, inflammation, or irritation in the spine.

Facet Injections also known as facet joint injections or facet blocks, are medical procedures used to diagnose and treat pain arising from the facet joints in the spine. Facet joints are small joints located between each pair of vertebrae in the spine, and they play a role in providing stability and facilitating movement. Facet injections involve the injection of medications, typically a combination of a local anesthetic and a corticosteroid, into or around the facet joint to alleviate pain and inflammation.

Kyphoplasty/Vertebroplasty are minimally invasive procedures used to treat vertebral compression fractures by stabilizing fractured vertebrae through the injection of bone cement, with kyphoplasty involving the use of a balloon to create a cavity before cement injection, while vertebroplasty directly injects cement into the fractured vertebra. Both techniques aim to relieve pain, enhance vertebral stability, and promote a quicker recovery compared to traditional surgical interventions.

Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (LLIF) is a surgical procedure used to treat spinal conditions by accessing the lumbar spine through a lateral, or side, approach. During LLIF, a portion of the intervertebral disc is removed and replaced with a spacer or cage filled with bone graft material to promote fusion and stabilize the affected spinal segments.

Laminectomy Cervical, also known as cervical decompression surgery, involves the removal of part of the vertebral bone called the lamina in the cervical (neck) region of the spine. This procedure aims to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves, often caused by conditions such as spinal stenosis or herniated discs, by creating more space within the spinal canal.

Laminectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the lamina, a portion of the vertebral bone, to alleviate pressure on the spinal cord or nerves in the spine. This decompressive surgery is commonly performed to address conditions like spinal stenosis and herniated discs, aiming to relieve pain and restore normal spinal function.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS) is a surgical approach that utilizes advanced techniques and technologies to treat spinal conditions with reduced disruption to surrounding tissues. Instead of traditional open surgery, MISS involves smaller incisions, specialized instruments, and guided imaging to access and treat the spine, resulting in less trauma, shorter recovery times, and potentially fewer complications for patients.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery/Fusions (MISS) for fusions involves using advanced techniques with smaller incisions, specialized instruments, and guided imaging to perform spinal fusion procedures. This approach aims to treat conditions such as spinal instability or degenerative disc disease with reduced tissue disruption, leading to shorter recovery times and potentially fewer complications compared to traditional open spinal fusion surgery.

OsteoCool Ablation for Painful Bone Tumors is a minimally invasive procedure used for treating painful bone tumors, such as metastatic lesions. During the procedure, a specialized device, often using radiofrequency ablation (RFA) technology, is guided to the tumor site through imaging techniques. The device then generates heat to destroy or coagulate the tumor tissue, providing pain relief by targeting and minimizing the tumor’s impact on surrounding nerves and structures. This approach is designed to offer a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical methods for managing painful bone tumors.

Radiofrequency Denervation of Facet Joints, also known as facet joint ablation or rhizotomy, is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at reducing pain arising from the facet joints in the spine. During the procedure, a specialized needle is guided to the affected facet joint using imaging, and radiofrequency energy is then applied to disrupt the nerves responsible for transmitting pain signals from the joint. This targeted denervation can provide long-lasting pain relief for individuals experiencing chronic back pain related to facet joint issues.

Reconstructive Surgery refers to a type of surgical procedure that aims to restore or improve the function, form, or appearance of a part of the body that has been damaged or altered due to injury, disease, congenital anomalies, or previous surgeries. It often involves repairing or rebuilding tissues, such as skin, bones, muscles, or organs, with the goal of enhancing overall health and quality of life for the patient.

Regenerative Therapy is a medical approach that aims to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and repair damaged tissues or organs. It often involves the use of biological materials, such as stem cells, growth factors, or other cellular components, to promote tissue regeneration and restore normal function. This innovative field holds promise for treating various conditions, including injuries, degenerative diseases, and chronic disorders, by harnessing the body’s own regenerative capabilities.

SI-Joint Injections & Fusions involve the injection of a local anesthetic and corticosteroid into the sacroiliac joint to alleviate pain and inflammation, serving both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. On the other hand, SI-Joint Fusions are surgical procedures that aim to stabilize the sacroiliac joint by connecting pelvic and sacral bones, either through bone grafts or implants, to restrict movement and reduce pain caused by joint instability.

Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) Trial & Placement is a temporary evaluation phase where a small electrode or wire is placed near the spinal cord to assess its effectiveness in relieving chronic pain. If the trial proves successful in alleviating pain, the permanent Spinal Cord Stimulator Placement involves the surgical implantation of a device that generates electrical impulses, disrupting pain signals and providing long-term pain relief for individuals with conditions such as chronic back pain or neuropathic pain.

Spinal Fusion is a surgical procedure that involves permanently connecting two or more vertebrae in the spine to limit movement between them. This is typically done using bone grafts, metal implants, or a combination of both, with the goal of stabilizing the spine, relieving pain, and addressing conditions such as spinal instability or degenerative disc disease.

Spine Tumor Treatments encompass various medical approaches to address tumors affecting the spine, including benign or malignant growths. These treatments may involve surgery to remove the tumor, radiation therapy to target cancerous cells, chemotherapy, or targeted therapies, with the choice of treatment depending on the type, size, and location of the spine tumor.
