Welcome to Morehead Neurospine
Morehead Neurospine evaluates and treats patients with neck, back and peripheral nerve pain. Using proven surgical techniques to reduce pain and restore function are the cornerstones of Dr. Mark Roy’s practice at Morehead Neurospine.
Specializing in back, neck and peripheral nerve pain, providers at Morehead Neurospine carefully study each patient’s images to develop a diagnoses and craft an individualized, innovative treatment plan.
With state-of-the-art technology and proven neurosurgical expertise, we work closely with a spine instrument company, Nuvasive, which enables us perform large reconstructive procedures, as well as smaller decompressive stabilizations. Many of these procedures are performed with minimal blood loss and result in shortened hospital stays
To determine if you are a candidate for Neurospine services, our providers may require additional tests, such as an MRI or CT scan. During consultation visits, we’ll help you understand and weigh the benefits and risks of surgery and determine if you are a good candidate for a neurosurgical procedure.
Anterior Cervical Diskectomy and Fusion
This is a common surgical procedure to treat nerve root or spinal cord compression by decompressing the spinal cord and nerve roots of the cervical spine in order to stabilize the corresponding vertebrae. This procedure is used when other non-surgical treatments have failed.
This is a procedure to relieve pain from pressure on the spinal cord or nerves due to spinal stenosis or ruptured discs.
Posterior Cervical Laminectomy
This surgery may be used to treat cervical stenosis by removing the lamina to enable more room for the spinal cord.
Posterior Cervical Fusion
This neurosurgical procedure is performed to relieve the pain from pressure on one or more nerve roots or on the spinal cord. It involves the stabilization of two or more vertebrae by locking them together (fusing them). The fusion stops the vertebral motion and as a result, the pain is also stopped.
A minimally invasive surgery used to repair spinal compression fractures.
This is a surgical procedure most often performed to treat leg pain related to a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, and other related conditions.
Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion
A surgical technique that is performed in patient with refractory mechanical low back and radicular pain associated with spondylolisthesis, degenerative disc disease, and recurrent disc herniation.
Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion
A less invasive procedure to fuse the spine segment from one side.
Laminectomy for excision of mass or lesion
A surgical procedure for entering the spinal canal in order to remove the mass or lesion.
Open Reduction and Internal Fixation
A surgical procedure to align the spine under direct and X-ray examination.
Spinal Cord Stimulator Trial and Permanent Placement
Spinal Cord Stimulation is a pain relief technique that delivers a low-voltage electrical current continuously to the spinal cord to block the sensation of pain. It is the most commonly used implantable neurostimulation technology for management of chronic pain syndromes of the trunk and limbs (back, legs and arms).
