Do you believe you need spine surgery? Problems of the back and neck are a common source of pain that not only cause physical impairment but can affect quality of life. Spinal conditions can be very debilitating.
As many as 80% of Americans will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Comprised of 24 vertebrae, supporting discs, the spinal cord, nerves, and numerous muscles and tendons, the spine is one of the most complex areas of the human body. Because of the intricacy of the spine, every back pain sufferer needs individualized assessment and treatment options. When the source of the pain results from injury or disease, prompt evaluation and care is necessary in order for patients to avoid serious and often painful consequences.
Accurate diagnosis for the pain is imperative so that the most effective treatment can be initiated. Our board certified and fellowship trained specialists in spine surgery will develop the best treatment plan for you. All conservative options are considered before surgical intervention is discussed. Modalities for pain relief of the spine include exercise, medication, physical therapy and epidural steroid injections. However, should you require an operation our surgeons are trained in the most simple to the most complex surgical procedures of the spine.
