Dynamic Spinal Stabilization
Dynamic spinal stabilization does not apply to any one particular type of surgery and is sometimes used to refer to several different surgeries. The general idea is based on the concept that many painful spinal conditions cause the spine to be unstable and move in patterns not consistent with a non-degenerated spine. The goal of dynamic spinal stabilization is to stabilize the spine while still allowing controlled motion. Some dynamic stabilization devices can be implanted using minimally invasive surgical techniques.
Dynamic spinal stabilization is most frequently used to treat pain because of degenerative conditions including painful disc degeneration and stenosis.
