CAROTID ARTERY DISEASE
Carotid artery disease occurs when fatty accumulation (plaques) clog the blood vessels that supply blood to your brain and head (carotid arteries). If the blockage increases, the blood supply to the brain is interrupted or seriously reduced, causing a stroke. High blood pressure, tobacco use, diabetes, high blood-fat levels, family history, age, obesity, and lack of exercise. I diabetes and obesity. The first sign that you have the condition may be a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). A TIA is a temporary shortage of blood flow to your brain.
The goal of treating carotid artery disease is to prevent a stroke. Specific treatments depend on the extent of blockage in your carotid arteries.
If blockage is mild to moderate, your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes to slow the progression of fat plaque (quitting smoking, losing weight, eating healthy foods, reducing salt, and exercising regularly). Also,medication to control blood pressure or lower cholesterol.
If blockage is severe, or if you've already had a TIA or stroke, your doctor may recommend removing the blockage from the artery. The options include:
Carotid endarterectomy, surgery is the most common treatment for severe carotid artery disease. The artery is repaired with either stitches or a graft.
Carotid angioplasty and stenting, if the blockage is too difficult to reach with carotid endarterectomy or you have other health conditions that make surgery too risky. You are given local anesthesia and a tiny balloon is threaded by catheter to the area of the clog. The balloon is inflated to widen the artery, and a small wire mesh coil (stent) is inserted to keep the artery from narrowing again.

NEUROVASCULAR SURGERY
We are pleased to inform about the incorporation of a specialist in neurovascular surgery to our medical staff, Dr Juan Jose Ramirez. Dr. Ramirez attended medical school at the Universidad Autonoma of Guadalajara School of Medicine in Guadalajara Mexico. Dr. Ramirez performed his Neurosurgery training at the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Mexico City. Also, to improve his skills and knowledge in neurovascular disorders, he completed a cerebral endovascular therapy clinical fellowship in the same hospital. Then, he also completed a training in cerebro-vascular surgery. He is one of the few neurosurgeons trained to treat cerebral vascular disorders with either open surgery or endovascular treatment.
He has experience in the treatment of brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformation, dural fistulas, and other brain vascular problems. Dr Ramirez has treated hundreds of patients with these conditions.

LUMBAR FLAT BACK SYNDROME
Lumbar flat back syndrome (LFBS) is an abnormal condition where the spine loses its natural low back curve to become flat. The spine becomes imbalanced and the patient tends to lean forward. Patients with flat back syndrome typically have trouble standing upright and may have ongoing back or leg pain. Causes of LFBS include lumbar degenerative disease (degeneration of discs related to the aging process), vertebral compression fractures, ankylosing spondylitis, and post-surgery.
The diagnosis of LFBS is performed based on the patient’s symptoms and x-rays of the spine.
Surgery is reserved for those patients that not respond to initial conservative measures (physical therapy, medications,etc). Surgical reconstruction for flat back syndrome involves some correction of the curvature. The goals of surgery are to relieve pain and prevent the curvature from getting worse in the future.
The images below show the pre and postoperative X-rays of a patient treated with surgery by our surgical team. She had a history of multiple lumbar spine surgeries in the US. As a result, the normal curve of lumbar spine was lost. She developed severe pain that kept her from walking and even standing. A portion of bone was removed (pedicle subtraction osteotomy) to allow for realignment of the spine and the instrumentation was extended with titanium implants. She improved after surgery.

FAQ

Have some Questions?

Functional neurosurgical procedures are indicated when medical treatment has failed to improve a patient’s condition. In the case of movement disorders (Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor or dystonia), if your neurologist considers that all available medical treatment have failed to improve your condition, he or she may indicate or suggests that you are candidate for a surgical treatment. In case of psychiatric disorders, your psychiatrist should inform you about this treatment option. The same process is done when you are dealing with a painful condition, your pain management specialist can inform you about surgical techniques to try to improve your symptoms.

Very likely we will need to request a medical report and a letter from your specialist stating that you are candidate for any type of functional surgery. We do not decide if you are candidate for surgical treatment but we can suggest what kind of procedure is suitable for you. Please send us an email if you would like to know about different neurosurgical procedures that we perform.

Some surgical procedures carry a high surgical risk (either by the type of disease or due to the patient’s conditions). In these cases is difficult to provide a quote.

Hospital fees (operating room, ICU, medications, lab tests,), medical fees (surgeons, anesthesiologist, nurse assistants) and airport-hotel transportation. (Due to the variability in costs, flights and hotels are not included.)

You need to send us an email informing us of what kind of surgery you need. In some conditions the indication for surgery is pretty obvious, but sometimes we will need a report from your treating specialist saying that you are candidate to any given procedure (this step is specially for surgery of movement disorders, surgery for psychiatric conditions and surgery for pain).

Our doctors will then discuss your case. You will receive a response informing you if we consider that you suitable to have surgery with us. If we decide you qualify to have a procedure performed, you will receive a quote.
