Dr. Charles Wingo has over 30 years of experience in the surgical treatment of spinal motion problems.
You will find that Dr. Wingo takes the time to listen to your symptoms, do a complete physical examination with image evaluation; and then give you a definitive diagnosis. He will explain all the treatment options available. You'll be receiving the benefits of Dr. Wingo's many years of experience, as well as the newest innovations in spinal technology
If surgical reconstruction after nerve decompression is indicated, Dr. Wingo will suggest a motion sparing procedure if there is no significant spinal instability. At one level, a Synthes Pro Disc C or L will probably be the best option. In addition, a posterior lumbar option for motion preservation is the Synthes N-Hance dynamic stabilization. If you are young and have a genetic predisposition to lumbar disc degeneration without actual nerve root impingement, a Total Disc Replacement is one of the surgical options, using the Synthes ProDisc L.
Every reconstructive surgery will require an exercise rehabilitation with a full body fitness workout program for at least three months to achieve maximum results.
All lumbar fusions are preformed by minimally invasive technology using a direct lateral, transforaminal, or anterior approch.
