Pediculectomy including Rehabilitation

What is a pediculectomy?
A pediculectomy is a surgical procedure that is used to relieve symptoms caused by a problem with a portion of the vertebrae called the pedicle. Each vertebra has two cylinder-shaped projections that extend from the back of the vertebral body, connecting the front and back parts of the vertebra.

Recovery time is variable.  We offer rehabilitation therapy to aid in the recovery process.
