Spondylosis

Spondylosis, also known as spinal osteoarthritis, can affect the lumbar, thoracic, and/or the cervical regions of the spine. The intervertebral discs and facet joints are affected with this degenerative disorder. The biochemical changes that occur as an individual ages affects tissue throughout the body and may have a detrimental effect on the structure of the discs.

As the aging process continues, degeneration may weaken the intervertebral discs due to a decrease in the nucleus's water content. In essence, the shock-absorber effects of the discs are compromised, creating more stress and pressure on the vertebrae. This loss of thickness in the disc may also result in a decrease in height.

Pain Relief for Spondylosis
When the facet joints are affected by spondylosis, the movement of the spine is compromised. Facet joints are like hinges and move as the spine moves in flexion, rotation, and extension. The loss of cartilage around the joints and the formation of osteophytes may be the result of osteoarthritis. These changes often lead to spondylosis.

Relief from the pain of spondylosis is possible without the need for invasive surgery requiring hospitalization and general anesthesia. At The Bonati Institute, the surgeons employ The Bonati Procedures to alleviate the pressure on the nerve roots caused by spondylosis. The Bonati Institute boasts an extremely high success rate--more than 90 percent, compared to the 50 percent success rate of traditional invasive open spine surgeries.
