Effective Back Pain & Spine Surgery Procedures in Anchorage

Back pain that is so debilitating that it prevents you from taking part in simple day-to-day activities may be relieved by undergoing orthopedic spine surgery. Orthopedic spine surgery can help patients suffering from a variety of neck and spinal disorders that include vertebral fractures, scoliosis, spinal deformities, vertebral hemangiomas, spinal tumors, spinal stenosis, and damage caused by trauma.

The goal of orthopedic spine surgery is to correct problems so pain is reduced. Reducing pain can help increase mobility which will allow you to slowly work your way to being able to enjoy favorite activities that were once off limits.

Properly diagnosing the cause of your back pain is necessary to receive proper treatment. ORCA’s skilled orthopedic spinal surgeons, will work closely with you to not only get a proper diagnosis but to come up with a therapeutic treatment plan that helps you overcome your back pain. The therapeutic treatment plan that is created for you by ORCA will include procedures, techniques, and treatment options that utilize the latest healthcare technology to treat back pain and correct problems caused by spinal or cervical disorders.

Non-Surgical Back Pain Relief Treatments

While our practice is a strong advocate for non-surgical treatment, sometimes the only way to relieve back pain is with surgery. We will discuss all treatment options, non-surgical and surgical, with you so you can make a well-informed decision about your care. Our goal is to help you choose the type of treatment that will give you the best results and help you reach your individual health goals.

Spinal Surgery & Disc Replacements

Once it is decided that surgical treatment is needed, we can perform the procedure as we specialize in a variety of orthopedic spinal surgical techniques including minimally-invasive surgery, open or traditional spine surgery, and total disc replacement.

To help you with the surgical healing process and get you back to good health, we will not only work with you for your surgical procedure, but we will work with you afterward, too. After spinal surgery, we will work to create a customized maintenance plan for you. Using a combination of physical therapy, pain management, and stabilization techniques, you may be able to prevent further injury to your back. A customized maintenance plan will also help you properly rehabilitate after undergoing surgery.

  • What does an orthopedic physician do?
    An orthopedic physician is a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and rehabilitation of disorders, injuries and diseases of the body’s musculoskeletal system. This system includes muscles, ligaments, bones, nerves, tendons and joints. This medical specialist may treat musculoskeletal disorders through alternative therapies or surgery.
  • What is Tendonitis?
    A tendon is a thick cord that attaches bone to muscle. If it becomes inflamed or irritated, the condition is known as tendonitis. Often, it is repetitive movements that cause tendonitis, such as tennis, throwing and painting.
  • What is the Achilles tendon?
    The Achilles tendon is a cord of fibrous tissue that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. It is common for this tendon to get injured, ruptured or partially torn. Common causes for an injury to the Achilles tendon are activities in which one starts, turns or stops abruptly, such as the movements in sports.
  • What causes hip pain?
    There are many causes of hip pain. Hip pain may be the result of muscle strain, sciatica, arthritis, bursitis, fracture and more. Symptoms may include loss of motion of the hip, tenderness of the hip and groin pain. The treatment for hip pain is dependent on the root cause of the pain. Treatments may include cortisone medications or physical therapy. Hip fractures may require surgical repairs, including a total hip replacement.
  • When is knee surgery indicated?
    The telltale signs that indicate you may benefit from surgery are persistent loss of motion, unable to bear weight on the knee and hearing a pop when you turn a certain way. When conservative methods are unable to treat knee injuries, your physician may recommend total knee replacement. This type of surgery entails removing some or all of the knee joints and replacing the damaged parts with an artificial joint.
  • What do the doctors at ORCA treat?
    The doctors at ORCA are board certified in orthopedic surgery and treat conditions of the hip, elbow, hand, shoulder, feet and knee. They specialize in PRP, IRAP and Swiftpath. PRP is a blood product, which helps with wound repair in orthopedic surgery. IRAP is a method for reducing inflammation in a joint and helps reduce chronic knee pain and osteoarthritis. Swiftpath utilizes protocols and technology for the enhanced recovery of joint replacement. This method allows for a quicker recovery after surgery and a faster return to work and daily activities.
