EXPERTISE & TREATMENTS
Type of Surgery &
Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR) is a surgical procedure in which a damaged spinal disc is replaced with a manufactured disc, maintaining spinal motion. Dr. Cuéllar specializes in ADR surgery, which restores the flexibility of the spine and provides long-lasting pain relief.
Also referred to as MISS, Minimally Invasive Surgeries use a variety of different surgical approaches to reduce damage to the body and get you back to moving faster.
This minimally invasive surgical procedure is commonly used to treat herniated discs, providing immediate relief from radiating nerve pain.
Foraminotomy is a surgical procedure that was developed to relieve the pressure and pain of compressed nerves by enlarging the intervertebral foramen that houses the nerve.
Both types of decompression surgery, laminectomies and laminotomies provide relief to those living with spinal stenosis by removing most or all of a vertebrae’s lamina, an arch of bone that forms the “roof” of the spinal canal.
Spinal fusion is a procedure that involves the fusion of two or more bones in any part of the spine, limiting movement and preventing pain. This procedure is most often used to reshape the spine and provide stability when there is a spondylolisthesis or fracture. Dr. Cuéllar also provides minimally invasive alternatives to spinal fusion.

Conditions We Treat
Degenerative disc disease refers to a breakdown of the soft discs between the vertebrae, a part of the normal wear and tear process of aging on the spine. This condition can also occur in younger individuals who have experienced a back injury.
A result of long-term wear and tear, a herniated disc occurs when an intervertebral disc that separates the bones of the spinal column ruptures, causing pain, numbness, or weakness.
The term sciatica is used to describe the symptoms of pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling that radiates along the sciatic nerve from the buttock through the back of the thigh and down the leg to the ankle and foot. This condition occurs when one of the nerve roots which contributes to the sciatic nerve is compressed, which can be caused by a variety of other spinal conditions.
Spinal stenosis refers to the narrowing of the spaces surrounding the spinal cord and nerve roots, compressing the nerves in the involved vertebrae. A variety of symptoms including pain, tingling, numbness, muscle cramping or weakness may then develop.
Also known as a "pinched nerve", the condition occurs when a nerve in the neck is irritated as it branches away from the spinal cord. It most often occurs as a result of changes in the cervical spine with age-related issues, as well as from an injury that causes a herniated or bulging disc.
Scoliosis is a term used to describe a disorder in which a sideways curve of the spine is present. Scoliosis can occur as a single arc to either the left or right side or arc twice giving the spine an "S" shape. This curvature can be both disfiguring and painful and can result in further damage to the spine, heart, and lungs.
Spondylolisthesis is a condition that occurs when one vertebra in the spinal column slides over the one below it. When the vertebra moves out of position, the spinal cord or nerve roots may be pinched causing symptoms of pain and other neurological dysfunction. Spondylolisthesis can also lead to deformities of the spine such as lordosis or kyphosis.
The term "kyphosis" refers to an abnormal curving of the spine typically in the thoracic region resulting in a rounding of the back that produces a slouching or hunchback posture. While mild kyphosis may cause few problems, pronounced cases can result in more debilitating symptoms and disfigurement, such as compression of the spinal cord, and cardiac and pulmonary problems.
