Dr. Ghosh provides state-of-the-art care in the management of a bone spur in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. A bone spur can arise from the normal degenerative process that occurs with age in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. They may cause compression of the nerves or spinal cord that can result in pain, numbness, or even weakness.
Dr. Ghosh is able to tailor the treatment and management of bone spurs to best suit the patient. This may involve approaching the spur from the front of the spine or approaching the spur through minimally-invasive portholes in the back of the spine. Dr. Ghosh has expertise in all of these approaches.
As for minimally-invasive options, options include outpatient procedures that involve minimally-invasive channels to gently remove the bone spurs with an operating microscope and precision surgical instruments.
Dr. Ghosh used this technique on Dr. Plowden Bridges with great success and you can see Dr. Bridges’ testimonial on the website.
