Port Orange Spine Surgeon

Spine Surgeon/Back Doctor in Port Orange

Back trouble can be debilitating, and it can significantly reduce your quality of life. It is nice to know that advancements in medicine and technology offer a great deal of hope to patients living with back pain, deformity, and disease. You can see an Orthopedic and Laser Spine Surgery (OLSS) back doctor in Port Orange for the answers to your back trouble and get on a treatment plan that can get you back to feeling your best.

If your back pain is severe, you may need a spine surgeon to guide your treatment plan. The help that a spine surgeon in Port Orange can bring a patient might be non-surgical. Still, if surgery is needed, they offer the least invasive, most effective options currently available. This means less pain, a quicker recovery time, and overall better results for the patient.

How Can a Port Orange Spine Doctor Help You?

A spine doctor will help you with a non-surgical procedure if it’s in your best interests or if you want to put off surgery and take more time to see for yourself if your condition progresses.

One of the most common root causes of back problems stem from deterioration of the cartilage between your vertebrae. One way that a spine doctor in Port Orange could fix this problem is by taking stem cells from your own body and using them to make new cartilage to be inserted between your vertebrae so that your discs will be protected from rubbing against one another.

Our experienced spine doctors are also skilled at helping patients with their herniated or bulging discs. This problem often occurs when the outer wall of one of these discs dries out and weakens with age or injury, causing the soft inner part of the disc to bulge. This bulging disc can press on the spinal cord and cause symptoms such as pain, tingling, or even weakness in the body. A minimally invasive procedure called a lumbar discectomy can fix the problem as an outpatient procedure while only creating an incision the size of a postage stamp.

These are just a few examples of what a spine surgeon in Port Orange can do to help someone with back problems, but they underscore the ability of a spine surgeon to treat their patients with minimal inconvenience.

Common Conditions a Spine Doctor Can Help With

Some of the conditions or injuries that a spine doctor can help with include:

  • Vertebral sprains and strains

Of course, there may be other conditions that fall into this category as well. Speak with your doctor if you experience any pain in your back or neck as it could be a sign of a serious condition.
