Working quickly to assess your injury and provide treatment, we work towards the preservation and restoration of your function.

Spinal Fractures 

When the spinal column experiences a traumatic injury, its bony structures can fracture (break), causing pain, instability and in some cases, paralysis. Surgical options include:

  • Decompression surgery if the fracture leads to the compression of nerves or spinal cord.
  • Anterior cervical, thoracic or a lumbar vertebral body replacement surgery – removing and replacing a damaged vertebra
  • Spinal reconstruction by using various fixation devices allowing realignment, stabilization and healing of your injured spinal anatomy.
