When you think of a neurosurgeon, chances are you think of just two things: brain and surgery. But these specialists provide comprehensive care for the spine as well. In fact, 85% of neurosurgery cases are spine related.
Our neurosurgeons love talking backs and how to treat yours, and not just in the operating room. From lower back pain up to the neck, we care for all parts of the spine. And our surgeons are further specialized in performing minimally invasive procedures that can reduce pain and recovery time.
Your neurosurgeon will get an understanding of your condition by asking you questions and reviewing your imaging results. Then you’ll continue the conversation together to determine the treatment that’s right for you.
If non-surgical options aren’t working, surgery might be your best chance at finding relief. Factors that could influence this decision include:
"While there can be a negative public perception surrounding back surgery, many procedures nowadays can be done minimally invasively and offer a positive impact on the patient's quality of life. Consider my patient Kathy. She suffered with back pain for 25 years. Yet through a minimally invasive procedure, we were able to restore her mobility and lessen her pain in a matter of months. Kathy is enjoying life again, and I feel blessed to have been able to help her on that journey."
