Mount Carmel provides careful and comprehensive surgical treatment of spinal cord diseases and injuries. With their skill and experience in treating vertebral disorders, including tumors, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and arthritis of the spine, our board-certified neurosurgeons utilize sophisticated surgical techniques to perform procedures such as:
- Spinal fusion and fixation
- Endoscopic lumbar discectomy
- Lumbar and cervical artificial disc replacement
Mount Carmel surgeons have an array of precision technology at their disposal as well. In fact, Mount Carmel was the first Columbus-area hospital to operate the Stealth Station - a computer-aided, image-guided navigation system that allows surgeons to clearly perform delicate spinal procedures with precise and correct placement of spinal hardware. We also have the technology to perform spinal cord monitoring throughout the surgical case to further ensure patient safety.
To further advance the specialty, we regularly participate in cutting-edge spinal research. At the moment a member of the Mount Carmel medical staff is taking part in the nation's first-ever multi-level artificial cervical disc study.
