Dr. Donald Corenman is one of a handful of individuals that are both a MD and doctor of chiropractic (DC). His practice with the Steadman Clinic in Vail, CO serves the Vail and Denver area with patients traveling from the US and abroad seeking resolution for chronic back pain and failed surgical treatment.
Dr. Donald Corenman, MD, DC ( | 970-479-5895), is a Vail spine surgeon who specializes in all areas of the neck, back and spine. He treats patients with degenerative spine disorders as well as those with sports-related and traumatic injuries. He is currently in private practice at the Steadman Clinic—Vail Spine Institute—in Vail, CO—the premier spine institute for sports injuries.
Dr. Corenman is skilled at diagnosing all areas of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine and is an expert in treating such conditions causing back and neck pain as posterior cervical foraminotomy, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease, as well as all sports related and traumatic injuries involving fractures. He recently created this video on posterior cervical foraminotomy to provide a detailed description of this condition of the cervical spine.
Posterior cervical foraminotomy is a technique to decompress the cervical nerve root without a fusion to reduce neck pain. The approach is from the back of the neck and the decompression takes off some of the lamina and the medial half of the facet. It is used for herniated discs in the foramen, compressing the nerve, and is not a good technique for bone spur formation or herniations as this is where the spinal cord is located. It will not work for neck pain.
He has dedicated his professional life educating others about spinal disorders and treatments. He recently launched his own educational neck and back website to inform and educate patients and physicians on the spine.
