Lumbar Dynamic Stabilization (also known as soft stabilization or flexible stabilization) has developed as a less invasive, more effective and reversible alternative to spinal fusion that Angeles Health is pleased to offer its patients.
Dynamic stabilization also costs far less than spinal fusion surgery, with typical savings over traditional spine surgery amounting to $50,000 and more. Add to that the savings made by choosing Angeles Health, as well as the opportunity to undergo a new procedure that is not available in its full capacity everywhere, and the benefits of LDS at Angeles Health are clear.
Dynamic stabilization uses flexible materials to stabilize the affected lumbar region while preserving the natural anatomy of the spine. It is intended to alter the load-bearing pattern of the spine's motion segment and to control any abnormal motion while leaving the affected spinal segment mobile. The idea behind stabilization is that controlling abnormal motions while supporting more physiologic load transmission may relieve the pain associated with degenerative disk disease and prevent further degeneration of adjacent segments of the spine. Once normal motion and load transmission can be achieved, a patient's damaged disc may even repair itself.
