Globus Spine Surgery

The spine, with 33 bones aligned on top of each other, is the main support system for the human body. Windham Hospital’s orthopedic specialists are skilled in caring for various spinal injuries and conditions with non-surgical and surgical approaches, including those using the Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ guidance system.

Our experts treat everything from degenerative and herniated discs, pressure on the nerves that cause you pain, spinal stenosis and metastatic tumors.

Pressure in your spine can be caused by

  • Disks that bulge out between the vertebrae (herniated disk)
  • Degenerative and arthritic conditions of the spine
  • Fractures of the spine
  • Narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis)
  • Abnormal growths (tumors)
  • Infection (abscess)

Symptoms of possible spinal problems can include:

  • Neck and low back pain
  • Pain that radiates into your arms or legs
  • Weakness in the arms or legs
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms or legs
  • Osteoporosis

Fortunately, many spinal conditions can be treated with physical therapy, steroid injections, anti-inflammatory medications and/or other pain management techniques. If you do need surgery, our spine experts use minimally-invasive procedures to help you, often with our Globus ExcelsiusGPS™ robotic guidance system.
