Orthopedic & Laser Spine Surgery Candidacy Check Tool

Your back is a remarkably well-engineered structure. It’s made up of a complex, interconnected network of bones, muscles, joints and ligaments, all working to provide flexibility, support and movement. However, this complex structure is also highly susceptible to pain.

Most of these pains are due to injuries and traumas from fractures, sprains and accidents. Other times, they’re a result of conditions that affect the spine, including scoliosis, spinal stenosis, disc degeneration, pinched nerves or herniated discs.

All of us have experienced back pain at some point, but we tend to ignore this pain unless it aggravates or interferes with our lives. However, we should never ignore back pain. A regular pain in your back, neck or spine can increase your risk of death by up to 15%.

The good news is that most patients with back pain respond well to non-surgical treatment options such as physical exercise and medication. If non-surgical treatments fail to provide relief, surgical intervention may be considered. In this case, minimally invasive surgery is the best option.
