Physicians on the medical staff, nurses, and physical and occupational therapists at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southwest Fort Worth work to care for patients with back and spine injuries, disorders and conditions. Technology at the hospital helps physicians provide quality diagnosis and treatment, with a goal of improving patients' quality of life and helping them reach their greatest level of independence.
Back and spine services available at the hospital include:
- Laminectomy - A surgical procedure in which part of the vertebra, called the lamina, is removed. This takes pressure off of nerves in the lower back.
- Spinal injections
- Discectomy with fusion - A surgical procedure that relieves the pressure placed on nerve roots and/or the spinal cord by a herniated disc or bone spurs.
