The spinal column is one of the most vital parts of the human body, supporting our trunks and making all of our movements possible. Its anatomy is extremely well designed, and serves many functions. All of the elements of the spinal column and vertebrae serve the purpose of protecting the spinal cord, which provides communication to the brain and mobility and sensation in the body through the complex interaction of bones, ligaments and muscle structures of the back and the nerves that surround it. The normal adult spine is balanced over the pelvis, requiring minimal workload on the muscles to maintain an upright posture. Loss of spinal balance can result in strain to the spinal muscles and spinal deformity. When the spine is injured and its function impaired, the consequences may be painful and even disabling. If you are dealing with chronic pain due to abnormalities in the spinal system, call Dr. Kris Parchuri D.O. at Tulsa Spine Surgery today. His numbers 539-664-8444, and he is connected to every patient he works with. We focus on getting you back to normal and making your life more pain-free than ever before.

Between the spinal vertebrae are discs, which function as shock absorbers and joints. They are designed to absorb the stresses carried by the spine while allowing the vertebral bodies to move with respect to each other. Each disc consists of a strong outer ring of fibers called the annulus fibrosis, and a soft center called the nucleus pulposus. The outer layer (annulus) helps keep the disc’s inner core (nucleus) intact. The annulus is made up of very strong fibers that connect each vertebra together. The nucleus of the disc has a very high water content, which helps maintain its flexibility and shock-absorbing properties.

The vertebrae support the majority of the weight imposed on the spine. The body of each vertebra is attached to a bony ring consisting of several parts. A bony projection on either side of the vertebral body called the pedicle supports the arch that protects the spinal canal. The laminates are the parts of the vertebrae that form the back of the bony arch that surrounds and covers the spinal canal. There is a transverse process on either side of the arch where some of the muscles of the spinal column attach to the vertebrae. The spinous process is the bony portion of the vertebral body that can be felt as a series of bumps in the center of a person’s neck and back.

The facet joints connect the bony arches of each of the vertebral bodies. There are two facet joints between each pair of vertebrae, one on each side. Facet joints connect each vertebra with those directly above and below it, and are designed to allow the vertebral bodies to rotate with respect to each other. There are many aspects and intricate parts of the spinal column, and you can take care of all of your spinal and Tulsa Spine Surgery needs here in your own hometown with Dr. Kris Parchuri D.O. Let us take care of you so you will not have to life with the pain that you are living in today.

We offer a wide range of procedures including cervical laminectomy’s. This procedure removes the spinous process and lamina from the vertebrae to eliminate pressure on the spinal cord. Often times the source of the pressure is a condition in which there is a narrowing of the spinal canal which causes pressure on the spinal nerves. Once the bone is removed a graph can be added to fused vertebrae and provide easy stability to your spine. Through all of these minimally invasive procedures you will be allowed to return home quickly and start the recovery process. We will walk you through all the recovery and make sure that you get the most out of your procedures done by Dr. Kris Parchuri D.O.
