Dr. Yanamadala is trained in comprehensive minimally invasive techniques including tubular spine surgery and minimally invasive fusion techniques (MIS-TLIF, XLIF, LLIF). He uses many of these techniques when appropriate for patients with herniated discs, lumbar stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and even spinal tumors and spinal deformities. In many cases, minimally invasive techniques allow patients to recover faster and even go home the same day. Please see some of his recent cases below.
Minimally Invasive Multilevel Laminectomy
This 73 year old gentleman had severe bilateral leg pain from severe stenosis at multiple levels. A priority for him was getting him through surgery efficiently and home the same day. The slalom technique allows me to transform this three level spine surgery into three one level surgeries done through three tubes. After a two hour surgery, this gentleman was in recovery for three hours before returning home with his leg pain resolved!
