The physicians at Spine/Orthopaedics have over 20 years of experience in treating musculo-skeletal injuries, and have special expertise in injuries to the spine and foot and ankle. They genuinely care about the patient and will take the time necessary to determine the course of treatment that will provide the best possible outcome.
 


Is surgery for neck or back pain necessary? The answer is: sometimes. It is reasonable to consider spine surgery if the pain has not diminished after several months of non-surgical treatment, if your pain does not respond to medications, or if you are unable to complete basic daily activities. But fear not – there are a wide array of reconstructive options.

Some procedures are minimally invasive such as Endoscopic Spine Discectomy, which is a technique that utilizes an endoscope to treat herniated, protruded, extruded, or degenerative disks that are contributing factors to leg and back pain as well as neck and arm pain. The endoscope allows the surgeon to use a small incision to access the herniated disc. Muscle and tissue are dilated rather than being cut when accessing the disc. Minimally invasive surgery allows for a shorter recovery period.

At Spine/Orthopaedics, we frequently treat multiple conditions and try to keep recovery time and cost to a minimum. Understanding your surgical condition and options will help you better decide on a treatment course. Our prevailing treatment philosophy can be summed up as follows:

“We don’t do more than is required to help our patients get better.”
