When is The Spine Center the Right Answer?
Whenever chronic, debilitating, or critical back or spine issues necessitate a spine surgeon, The Spine Center is the smartest choice. Note that surgery is not always recommended for all spinal conditions; in fact, we recommend surgical options only after curative efforts using noninvasive measures have been exhausted.
Among the conditions that surgery at The Spine Center may address best are:
- Compromise of neurological function.
- Spinal instability due to infection, tumor, trauma, etc.
- Lumbar herniated discs, that is, the rupture of the nucleus pulposus—also commonly called "slipped" or ruptured discs.
- Lumbar or spinal stenosis, that is, narrowing of the of the spinal canal—the bone-encased tubular space through which the spinal cord passes—and related complications (e.g., thickened ligaments, bone spurs, facet joint enlargement/hypertrophy, bulging discs).
- Unabated neck or back pain despite extensive conservative measures.
These short overview videos give a more detailed look at both patient conditions and surgical approaches.
