Operative Spine – Spondylosis (Arthritis)
Spondylosis is degenerative arthritis of the joints between vertebrae, the bony segments that make up the spinal column. This condition can cause pressure on the nerves in the spine causing pain and weakness that can restrict movement. The tissues between the vertebrae are subject to wear and tear as the bones begin to rub together.
