Leaders in Minimally Invasive Procedures in NY and NJ.
Patients suffering from lumbar conditions may be interested to know that Dr. Q and the expert team at Q Spine Institute specialize in a minimally invasive surgery option using OptiMesh® Graft Containment. OptiMesh® is a revolutionary, minimally invasive bone graft insertion using a three-dimensional mesh pouch filled with bone to restore alignment of the spine, increase stabilization and reduce pain.
Patients at Q Spine Institute prefer the use of OptiMesh® technology over a more traditional lumbar surgery techniques because this treatment method results in minimal damage to muscle, ligaments and soft tissue, reduced post-operative pain, shorter length of hospital stay and faster recovery periods.
The OptiMesh® bone graft insertion system uses biological bone-filling material in order to achieve true biologic lumbar reconstruction with few technical risks.
During the procedure, Dr. Q makes a small incision (1 inch or less). He then uses an extremely small tube to insert an empty three-dimensional mesh pouch into the correct position. Once the implant is placed correctly, a small tube is used to fill the implant with bone graft to expand it to its full size.
As OptiMesh® is filled with bone, the bone particles are contained within the mesh. As more particles are added, they pack together tightly until the bone pack becomes very hard – like sand filling a sand bag. This hard bone pack provides the proper environment needed for fusion to occur. When the procedure is complete, the patient now has a large, custom-fit, load-bearing allograft spacer.
You should talk with your doctor about all of your treatment options, both non-surgical and surgical. If you are considering any of the following treatments, OptiMesh® may be an option for you: Lumbar Fusion, Minimally Invasive TLIF, Minimally Invasive PLIF, Lumbar Interbody Fusion (IBF) and Lumbar Pedicle Screw Fixation.
