What is Spinal Stenosis?
Patients with spinal stenosis live with a medical condition that causes the narrowing of the spinal canal in one or multiple areas of the spinal column. This is a condition that Dr. Mark Valente, our board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeon, can diagnose and treat at Preston Surgery Center. Because spinal stenosis is progressive and can become painful as the spinal canal narrows, we offer a range of essential treatment options for patients with all degrees of the condition. We also have protocols for diagnosing and treating foraminal stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spaces between the bones in your spine. Dr. Valente is an award-winning, orthopedic spine surgeon who can assist you in finding solutions in addressing the pain and managing the symptoms of spinal stenosis.
