WARREN, Ohio (PRWEB) April 02, 2012
St. Joseph Health Center reintroduced spine services earlier this year, enabling individuals with spinal injuries who reside in Trumbull County to seek treatment close to home.
Services available include laminectomies with and without fusions, kyphoplasties and other spine procedures.
Laminectomies are surgical procedures in which the bony arches of one or more vertebrae are removed to relieve the symptoms of herniated disks.
Kyphoplasties are minimally invasive surgical procedures that stabilize vertebral compression fractures using acrylic cement.
Until now, a full line of spine services had not been available at St. Joseph since 2008. Kyphoplasties were reintroduced in 2009. Other procedures were reintroduced this year.
