North Broward NeuroSpinal Surgery
What We Do:
Dr. Foltz’s depth of knowledge and extensive neurosurgical experience reaches far and wide. Please consult the list below to get an idea of the conditions he treats.
This condition presents as an excess of cerebrospinal fluid within the skull. Surgical intervention is required to restore healthy intracranial pressure.
Cervical Disease Treatments
Neck pain and discomfort can drastically impede quality of life. Dr. Foltz is able to assess the extent of cervical disk conditions and enact a targeted treatment plan.
Spinal cord compression can cause anything from chronic pain to paralysis. Decompression treatment is used to alleviate that stress and restore healthy functionality.
Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (XLIF)
Another method of spinal fusion, differentiated by surgical entry to the affected site.
Brain Tumor Management
Patients with brain and or spinal cord tumors require customized treatment plans following a strict regimen of techniques including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted cancer therapy. Dr. Foltz is also able to perform neuro-oncological surgery.
Osteoarthritis can affect all joints in the body, even the spine. Dr. Foltz offers treatment options for those patients experiencing moderate to severe arthritic damage.
The lower back is a common hot spot for pain and injury. Surgical removal of disk material from this region can be used to relieve that pain and prevent its escalation.
A type of fracture that occurs from a collapse of the vertebrae and mat result in bone fragments accumulating in the spinal column. Patients with this type of fracture are in a delicate situation and Dr. Foltz will be able to recommend a treatment plan specific to your case needs.
This condition, characterized by recurring seizures, requires careful diagnosis and management in order to bring about the best patient outcomes. Dr. Foltz is able to assess those patients who may have epilepsy and provide comprehensive care solutions.
These techniques are used to treat spinal cord compression as a result of disc herniation or degenerative disk disease.
Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF)
This surgical technique is designed to treat spinal instability by permanently uniting the bones of the lower spine. Dr. Foltz uses this approach when treating severe cases of degenerative disc disease and spondylolisthesis.
One of the major nerves of the hand – the median nerve – can become compressed as it travels through the wrist. Dr. Foltz offers a wide variety of treatment methods from pain management and mitigation to surgical repair.
Characterized by a collection of blood between the inner layer of the dura mater and the arachnoid mater, this condition requires incredibly delicate surgical intervention to treat.
This style of surgery is at the cutting edge of what is technically possible. Dr. Foltz has significant experience with this minimally invasive approach.
Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF)
Different from TLIF in that surgical entry is from the front of the body rather than the back.
