Tops Facet Replacement

Tops Facet Replacement

Our clinic is proud to offer Tops Facet Replacement, which was newly approved by the FDA in June of 2023. This revolutionary procedure is designed to alleviate pain and restore mobility in patients suffering from spinal conditions affecting the facet joints. This advanced treatment option provides a cutting-edge alternative to traditional spinal fusion, offering patients the opportunity to maintain motion in their spine while addressing their pain and instability issues.

What Is Tops Facet Replacement?

Tops Facet Replacement is a surgical procedure that involves replacing the damaged facet joints in the spine with an artificial device. The Tops Implant system is designed to stabilize the spine while preserving its natural range of motion, offering relief from conditions such as spinal stenosis, degenerative spondylolisthesis, and other related spinal conditions affecting the facet joints. In this Posterior Arthroplasty procedure, the surgeon removes the bony part of the facet joint that is pressing on the nerve and replaces it with the TOPs Spinal Implant.

Dr. Sielatycki has dedicated his surgical practice to the preservation of motion in the spine, whenever possible. He remains on the cutting edge of the research being done to this end. He received his training for the TOPs Replacement in September of 2023.
