Huntington Healthline August 2013
Huntington Hospital Community Healthline has released its August 2013 issue featuring our very own Dr. Arnold Schwartz discussing the success of his Coflex procedure (Page 6). Coflex is the first new spinal implant in several years to be approved by the FDA for spine surgery.
Dr. Schwartz was the first surgeon in the area to offer patients this groundbreaking procedure since its final FDA approval late last year. To read more about the article CLICK HERE
What is Coflex?
The coflex device is a small, titanium implant that goes in the back of your spine to treat moderate to severe spinal stenosis. After you receive anesthesia and are prepared for surgery, the surgeon makes a small incision in your back and performs a surgical decompression, which includes the removal of bone and soft tissue in and around your spine. This surgery takes the pressure off your nerves that are causing you pain.
How does Coflex work?
The coflex device is specifically designed to help keep your spine stable after decompression surgery. The coflex device also maintains the normal height between your vertebral bones so your nerves can exit the foramen and extend to your lower extremities. The coflex device allows your vertebral bones to move in a controlled way so the decompressed area is not unnaturally stiffened or fused.
