Spine (Advertorial – Get Back on Track – An Important Column on the Spinal Column)

The human spine consists of 33 vertebrae, four distinct areas and an infinite number of questions from patients on how best to treat it. Luckily, there’s the Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute. JOI offers many operative & non-operative options for adult and pediatric cases delivered by board-certified physicians with the most cumulative experience in the area.

Dr. Gregory Keller, a physician with JOI for over a decade says, “We’re extremely proud to offer everything under one umbrella. No matter if it’s imaging, operative and non-operative procedures, or physical therapy – patients receive seamless coordinated care.” “There’s always constant communication through the healing process which also enhances patient care,” adds JOI physician Dr. Brandon Kambach.

What’s New
Minimally invasive surgery is one of several revolutionary
techniques that JOI offers for many types of spine
problems. With minimally invasive surgery, the patient
experiences less blood loss during and after surgery.
That means a faster recovery with less pain and minimal
scarring. The healing process is often times shortened.
JOI also offers new technologies that help fuse the
spine, man-made proteins to enhance the healing process
and advanced techniques in anesthesia that allow JOI
surgeons to perform surgery.

Common Injuries
Dr. Keller says that one of the most common injuries he
sees among elderly patients is when a person’s vertebrae
has become weakened from osteoporosis and has
fractured due to anything from falling to just turning over
in bed. “We can treat this with Kyphoplasty,” says Dr.
Keller. “The technique uses a special hardening cement
that fixes in hours. The incision is covered with Band-Aids
and takes just a few days to heal. Ninety percent of my
patients enjoy relief of pain and regain mobility.”
Dr. Kambach says non-operative
procedures such as ultrasound
and electric stimulation are also
being used successfully for common
problems like lumbar strains.
Success Stories
Dr. Keller says that the best
aspect of his job is really improving a patient’s life. “I
had a patient who was admitted to the hospital unable
to move or walk,” he recounts. “I diagnosed her with an
acute compression fracture. I performed Kyphoplasty in
the evening and the next morning, she went home walking
without any assistance.”
With stories like that, we encourage you to call JOI for
your back pain.
