Kayal Pain & Spine Center’s minimally invasive procedure could be the answer

Franklin Lakes, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/08/2019 -- Epidural lysis of adhesions. Those who haven't experienced serious back and leg pain due to excess scarring on the spine probably know little or nothing about this procedure.

But for people who desperately want relief from debilitating pain caused by significant scar tissue, this minimally invasive surgery—performed expertly at Kayal Pain & Spine Center's spine surgery center in Westwood—can be life changing.

During epidural lysis of adhesions, scar tissue is removed from the epidural space within the spine. The epidural space is a tube-like structure that runs from the base of the skull to the sacral region.

This scarring is often caused by an injury or previous lumbar surgery. The scar tissue builds up and presses against the spinal nerves, causing inflammation and pain. Epidural lysis of adhesions can help address other spinal problems, including spinal stenosis, herniated discs, degenerative arthritis and degenerative spondylosis.

Complete, Compassionate Care
The top-notch specialists at Kayal Pain & Spine Center first explore nonsurgical options, such as oral medications and steroid injections. If surgery is necessary, this caring team will explain every step and answer every question.

During the procedure, a small incision is made and a catheter is inserted to break up the scar tissue. Medications also are used to soften the adhesions. The procedure usually takes 30 to 45 minutes and is performed outpatient so patients go home the same day.

Advantages of minimally invasive procedures such at epidural lysis of adhesions include:

- Shorter procedure
- Shorter or no hospital stay
- Less scarring
- Minimal blood loss
- Speedier recovery

It can take a few weeks to enjoy the full benefits of this surgery, but the results of this surgery can be transformative when lower back and leg pain is eliminated.
