The spine is the core support of the human body and needs to be treated with expert care. The anatomy of the spine 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. The spine 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.

Between each of the spinal vertebrae there are discs which function as shock absorbers. 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 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 Tulsa spine surgery needs with Dr. Kris Parchuri D.O. Dr. Parchuri can help relieve you of your daily pain and dramatically change your life.

The typical 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. without delay.

At the office of Dr. Kris Parchuri, we focus on getting your life back to the way it was before you started suffering from chronic pain. 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.

Our minimally invasive procedures allow you to get back to your normal routine quickly and start enjoying a life without pain. We offer a wide range of procedures including cervical laminectomies. 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.
