Spinal stenosis is a problem commonly seen in Dr. Luis Manuel Tumialán’s patients. This condition is essentially a narrowing of the bone channel along the spinal cord. This narrowing places pressure on the nerves of the spinal cord, which, in turn, results in a number of uncomfortable side effects, including general pain and a weakness or numbness of the legs. Dr. Tumialán offers minimally invasive spine procedures to alleviate back pain and other symptoms of spinal stenosis while minimizing the risks that are typically associated with spinal treatment.
