Experts in Decompression

When faced with spinal pain, leg pain, tingling or weakness from a pinched nerve, spinal decompression may offer relief. This procedure involves removing a small portion of the bone or disc material near the nerves or spinal cord to give the nerves more space, creating a better environment for healing.

At Brigham and Women's, our expert team will work with you to determine the most appropriate treatment technique based on your spinal condition and personal preferences. Our spine surgeons are highly skilled in the latest minimally invasive techniques for decompression, which, if appropriate, can reduce pain, accelerate recovery and minimize scarring.

Wherever you are in your care journey, Brigham and Women's multidisciplinary spine care team is committed to providing safe, expert spine care, both in-person and virtually. Our care team will work with you to schedule the right visit for you.
