Surgeries Performed

Whether you blew out a disk on the job or have a compression fracture from a fall or auto accident, you need relief from neck and back pain as quickly as possible. Board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jared Stefanko utilizes cutting-edge surgical technology to perform advanced neck and back surgery for conditions including scoliosis, spinal stenosis, traumatic injuries, and many others.

Patients travel from all over Northeast Ohio and the surrounding area for spine surgery with Dr. Stefanko because of his expertise and skill. After conservative efforts such as nerve root block injections or epidurals have failed to provide the relief you need, Dr. Stefanko uses the least invasive surgical method possible.

Cervical Spine (Neck)

Cervical Spine (Neck)

To treat instability of the spine, nerve or spinal cord impingement, or other serious conditions of the neck, Dr. Stefanko may recommend surgery after conservative efforts have failed. He utilizes the most advanced, up-to-the minute surgical techniques that are as minimally invasive as possible. Neck surgery procedures     Dr. Stefanko offers include:

Thoracic Spine (Mid-Back)

Thoracic Spine (Mid-Back)

Thoracic spine surgery is rarely performed because of its involvement with abdominal organs and the rib cage. Dr. Stefanko has received advanced training in mid-back surgery, and he will utilize it after steroid injections or other conservative measures are unsuccessful. When extreme cases warrant thoracic surgery, such as compression fractures or spinal cord dysfunction from a herniated disc, Dr. Stefanko may perform one of the following surgeries:

  • Discectomy
  • Fusion
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Laminectomy

Lumbar Spine (Lower Back)

Lumbar Spine (Lower Back)

Lumbar spine surgery is often used to alleviate nerve root compression (decompression surgery) or to eliminate pain by stopping motion at vertebral segments (lumbar fusion). Dr. Stefanko is expertly trained in cutting-edge lumbar spine surgeries that are minimally invasive and drastically reduce your risk of vascular and neural injuries during surgery.

Dr. Stefanko performs the following lumbar spine surgeries with precision:

  • Microscopic Discectomy
  • Laminectomy
  • Microscopic Decompression
  • Fusion
  • Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF)
  • Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF)
  • Extreme lateral inter body fusion (XLIF) / Direct lateral interbody fusion (DLIF)
  • Kyphoplasty

Injections

Dr. Stefanko does not rush into surgery, and takes a conservative approach to treat conditions of the spine whenever possible. To reduce pain and inflammation, Dr. Stefanko may prescribe one of the following types of anesthetic injections depending on the cause and location of your neck or back pain:
