Spine

Spine surgery includes evaluation, non-operative and surgical treatment of some of the most complex conditions of the musculoskeletal system. The spine is formed by three major segments: the cervical spine, the thoracic spine and the lumbar spine and is one of the most important components in the architecture of the human body providing strength and support. Most often, patients are referred for spinal surgery due to intense pain of the neck and back where traditional treatments for relief have failed. Stress on the spine can significantly impact an individual’s daily activities. The goal of spine surgery is to decrease pain, restore the function and structure of the spine and quality of life for the patient.

Spine surgeons work closely with disciplines including neurosurgery and plastic surgery when necessary and depending on the patient and risk factors, deploy minimally invasive techniques where possible.
